Are you afraid of drowning?
Yahoo News found a neckpiece that will keep you alive while in the water.
Rainer Fakesch created the Ploota after almost losing a family member to drowning.
The Ploota is an automatic sensor-controlled safety device for swimmers.
To use, just wear the neckpiece and the device triggers and releases two inflatable cushions if your head is submerged for more than 30 seconds. The inflated cushions will keep your head safely above water.
The Ploota is reusable and can also be activated manually.
This airbag you wear around your neck could save your life. (via In The Know Innovation)
