French designer Philippe Starck has created a new GPS wristband for the country’s voluntary lifeboat rescue service to help people stay safe in the water. The device is known as the Individual Alert and Localization Device, or DIAL, was commissioned by lifeboat organisation Les Sauveteurs en Mer (SNSM), as a way of finding people faster who are in danger in the water and to reduce the number of false alarms, according to the group.
