Life Dot / Avalanche Rescue Device

Life Dot
Life Dot

Life Dot is a rescue device when an avalanche happened. When people are covered by heavy snow, Life Dot will shout out like the signal gun. The little disk part is connected with the glove with a string attached. The disk will shine with red flash lights to get the attention, which the rescue team will find easily. When they find the people, they can find how long he or she has been covered and how deep he or she is, also with the heartbeat. All these functions will make people have higher survival rate. It uses all existing technology but provides a great combination and nice improvement.
