Technology decisions made during the design process
Our swimsuit initially had many ideas to help save people. We researched how we could inflate the suit using compressed air but decided on crystals that can store and release oxygen.
We thought it should do CPR or act like a defibrillator if you had a heart attack but it would be too dangerous to have an electric shock in the water.
We discussed having buttons to inflate it, but then we learned about AI. With AI, we can tell the suit when to inflate since a person that is panicking or unconscious will not be able to press a button.
We also discussed having a tube to purify water but decided not to include it. We felt with our radio wave communication, rescuers will be alerted of the issue and location to respond quickly.
