Rolling SOS / Rescue Whistle

Rolling SOS
Rolling SOS

R-sos is a pinball-shaped rescue whistle that can be used for help. After the earthquake, it is hard to hear the cries of people who trapped in the collapsed building, so the rescue mission becomes more difficult. The rescue whistles can make highly-frequent sounds loudly and far to attract the rescue dogs. Besides, R-sos is designed into pinball-shaped and bite-sized to roll through the cracks. The rescuers can throw lots of R-sos, and some may reach the place where survivors are. The survivor can get it and use it to make sounds. The R-sos provides another way to search for the survivors before the rescue teams arrive(or after they leave)
