Modern technology has enabled humans to master some pretty remarkable feats, yet it's the back-to-the-basics products like this ice rescue gear that still require more commitment in improvement. When somebody falls through thin ice, what technology can be accessed and administered in time to save a drowning victim?

Yoon Hoon's idea was for a one-man ice rescue board that he's called the Saviour. Equipment like this can be roped to stands and trees around lakes during the wintertime, poised for any emergency situation that could occur. Not requiring the usual second rescuer, the Saviour can be obtained by somebody on land and glided out towards the one submerged. With an integrated winch and an automatic draw, the device can swiftly bring a person to safety.
