During a water disaster, like a capsizing boat, there is a very short window of time to escape. As water enters the boat, power is disrupted making it very difficult to find your way to the nearest emergency exit, often resulting in death. This product, called Life Guide, is a quarter-circle shaped device that can be attached to 3 others to form a full circle. It can be stored on the vessel wall as an alternate light source. In the event of an emergency, red LED lights willflash to warn passengers and facilitate finding the device. Passengers can use the Life Guide as a flashlight. A green laser will project an arrow onto the floor, pointing in the direction of the nearest exit. RFID signals connect each device to the nearest emergency exit. As passengers exit the vessel, they can pull a ring on the top that will inflate a flotation device.
