Every year, nearly 18,000 children drown in developing countries. The JalaPira is a new device that’s aimed at reducing that number. The device is made from recycled PET plastic, and it’s meant to help kids rescue their companions when they’re in trouble. When it isn’t in use, the floatation device doubles as a seat at home. The JalaPira has the potential to save thousands of lives, and it’s currently contending for a James Dyson Award.
