Powered by water, the SOS can generate electricity to power its embedded GPS, and help to prevent people floating in the sea from dying of hypothermia through its heated lifebelt. It also has a compartment to store food and water. Once the lifebelt hits the water, GPS will be activated with electricity transformed from seawater, enabling the rescuers to pinpoint the exact position.
