Emily the Robotic Lifeguard Buoy Will Save Your Butt

emily-robotic-lifeguard-buoy-1.jpg

This Robotic Lifeguard Buoy named Emily, short for Emergency Integrated Lifesaving Lanyard, is a four foot long lifesaver that runs on a jet ski-like propulsion system to reach drowning swimmers at speeds of up to 24 miles per hour. This way swimmers in trouble could hold onto Emily while lifeguards come to get them. After successful tests Hydronalix, the company that created Emily, is planning to release a $3500 commercial version including sonar and acoustic sensors next spring. Now if only they could make Emily look more life Pamela Anderson...think about it.
