The concept of design for this future’s life vest lies in the GPS system and light attached on the vest so that search and rescue squads may be informed of where the victim is. The surface material of the life vest is a textile that can produce solar energy. The energy employment rate amounts to 4%, which means that 4% of the sunshine that lights on the cloth can be transferred into power. The principle is to insert a soft solar energy panel into the textile, a panel that is highly bendable and elastic.
