Drowning Saver / Drowning prevention

Drowning Saver

According to statistics, drowning is an important cause of death among teenagers worldwide. Drowning Saver that we design is a set of virtual reality equipment, which is aimed to train people’s emergency reaction to drowning. It is available for users to wear goggles and personally experience on the scene by means of virtual reality technology. The product utilizes magnetic suspension technique, lifts a person to a certain height by magnetic levitation force, and simulates the state and sensation of human suspension in water. The mask and bracer would simulate breathing difficulties and cramps to make users learn how to save themselves.
