The U Safe Is a Remote-controlled Life Preserver

Typically, when you use a life preserver, you just throw it to the man overboard and hope for the best. If you suck at throwing, the person being rescued has to swim further to get to the life preserver, and that can put them in danger for longer. If only we could guide the life preserver toward them. Well, now we can.

Meet U Safe. This remote-controlled life preserver from Noras Performance will make it easy to get the life preserver to its subject. You just toss it in the water, and guide it to a person in need using a remote control. It’s light and easy to maneuver. Once they grab on you can guide them back to safety. Its electric motors can guide it up to 3 miles on a charge, at speeds up to 15 knots.

This is something that will save lives for sure, assuming that people aren’t using them for life preserver races while someone is busy drowning, anyway. It’s for safety people. It’s not a toy.

How about that super dramatic music used in the promo video? It really gets me pumped up to save lives with this thing. I may just throw someone overboard just so I can experience the thrill of it.
