So many floods erupted in 2010, many people were killed. In fact, some of them were drowned, some were starve to death because they didn’t get help in time. This design offers a good solution: its structure is made of solid foam, so it can float in water. When flood erupt, famlies’ members can hide inside it, the structure can prevent people from water or strike. It can get solar energy and the LED light will shine at night, so rescue workers can find sufferers easily; What’s more, it can connect with each other and everyone may link together, which helps rescue workers rescue more massively.
