We’re in the Maker Challenge. I think to present our product to the judges…it might be a little stressful at first but then if you really think about it, they either like it or they hate it.
What is your product?
It’s a watch that you can rent at the beach and the lifeguard has a controller station on the stand. He can alert certain people or everyone with the watch of any dangerous things nearby or of anything that’s happening. So, some of the buttons are: there is a red flag, high tide, low tide, vibration, dangerous animal nearby. Stuff like that.
Why is that important?
Because there is a lot of dangerous stuff at the beach and people might not know it’s there. So, like an animal, maybe a lifeguard can see it because he is higher up. And people might want to know if it’s high tide or low tide because the water is higher and lower at certain points, so someone may want to know if they can swim in that or not. The swimmer can actually press a button on the watch and alert the lifeguard if they are in trouble.
