CHICAGO (PRWEB) October 23, 2017
After the recent floods in Houston and hearing about the police officer getting stuck in his vehicle and drowning, inventor and photographer Frank Ishman got thinking. Yes, computer technology is amazing but some things needed to save lives don't need to have Bluetooth or Wifi. After a few days of seeing whats available Frank came up with 1st Drop.
1st Drop is a water activated depth awareness beacon deployed by water rescue organizations and first responders to alert individuals walking or in automobiles to the depth of the water ahead. 1st Drop is reusable and provides average water heights for flooded areas by using a cord attached to a drop weight to measure the water depth and can monitor the rising water level for several days.
Inspiration for the project:
Frank Ishman, creator
Scott Bemis, mechanical engineer
Mitchell Bond, electronic engineer
