BUOY UNIT / buoy design

BUOY UNIT
BUOY UNIT

Buoy Unit is a floating plate. When disasters occur in water, it is always difficult for victims to rescue themselves from the ocean, even though they have already put on the life buoy. If victims keep drowning in the water for a long time, it is possible that their bodies would lose temperature gradually and threaten their lives. In this design, a low-lying part is situated at the center of Buoy Unit. It provides a space for victims to prevent their bodies from getting colder. Each Buoy Unit can be linked to other units so that victims who use this device can be gathered.
