Space of hope / Life-saving rubber boat

Space of hope

The design is based on the original rubber lifeboat, with inflatable semi-annular balloons on its sides. When people meet marine accident but the lifeboat was already full, people can open the inflatable semi-annular balloon, making the original rubber boat have more space, which can accommodate more people, and do not let them fell lonely on their way to survival.
