Rescurone / Water rescue drone




When an accident happens at sea, actions including 'call', 'check', and 'care' should be taken as soon as possible. RESCURONE is carried by a fishing boat which, if the boat tilts over 40 degrees, calls a rescue team. It takes care of people by providing rescue boats for people in the water, and it also checks the situation by taking videos, so that the rescue team can be aware of the situation well.

The RESCUERONE stands out with its very simple and minimal design, giving focus to its main task. It plays with the visual archetype of nautical rescue tools and integrates itself into this field very well. Therefore, people in need will immediately trust this design and feel protected.
We feel honored to get an recognition from the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD. It will motivate us to work harder on our designs. Thank you.
