The cognitive balloon concept has been designed to ensure maximum safety for the swimmers that alerts the lifeguards about a swimmer’s danger. This concept aims to eliminate the difficulties of seashore lifeguards to spot a person in danger and their exact location, which is one of the key reasons of beach fatalities. Also, it eliminates the hassle of swimmers to wear inconvenient and ugly safety gears by featuring a fashionable discrete wristband that releases a balloon with a simple button press. The balloon gets filled by compressed helium gas and rises quickly, so that a swimmer in danger can easily be identified even at a crowded beach by the lifeguards.
