Warm Life Jacket / survival device

Warm Life Jacket

If people aren’t rescued immediately after falling into water, they might be frozen to death though wearing a life jacket, especially in cold area.
A warm life jacket has heaters spreading in the jacket, which could help keep human body temperature, as well as accelerate blood circulation. The jacket is connected to the power box. The box consists of four parts: storage battery, solar charger, SOS signal projector, and floating box. The jacket is put into the floating box before used. The storage battery makes sure the jacket could be used at night. A warm life jacket would increase the probability of survival to some degree.
