Floating in seawater with a life preserver indeed helps those who have experienced a naval emergency from drowning but doesn't offer much else in the way of life preservation, so this life buoy concept has been designed to change this.
The buoy works by being used just like a traditional lifesaver, but will work to distill water as you float to provide hydration that could keep you alive for extended periods. This is crucial as those who are floating in water for extended periods after abandoning ship will often perish due to dehydration and sunburn.
The life buoy concept is the design work of He Yue, Wang Dading, and Yuan Huaiyu, and could help to revolutionize existing lifesaving equipment to curb the number of preventable deaths.
