Ocean Capsule / Rescue equipment

Ocean Capsule

If someone falls into the water, we just need to throw the "Ocean Capsule" to him to provide them with a life buoy. Just twist capsule gentlely, the medicine stored in the gray part will react with water immediately and inflate the life buoy in the orange part instantly.We designed the life buoy to consist of four balloons, so that even if one of the balloons is damaged, other balloons can continue to work. The capsule shell is made of waterproof material to prevent premature reaction of drugs during transportation and storage. In addition, orange shells and yellow buoys are designed to make rescue equipment easier to identify in water.
