Lifeboats don't seem to be anywhere near as effective at rescuing sailors after you've seen the SeAngel Helium Rescuing System. These helium-filled rescue pods were designed by Fedor Porshnev. Everything about the SeAngel Helium Rescuing System is futuristic, from its design to its function.

The SeAngel Helium Rescuing System can seat one person, and is able to float thanks to an on-board store of helium that is used to inflate a giant balloon. The balloon carries the rescue pod up into the air, with occupants allowed to control their altitude using a button that lets out helium. To ensure that the rescue pods don't float past rescue personnel, each one is installed with a GPS beacon.
