Robotic Lifeguard EMILY Hits the Beach

EMILY (EMergency Integrated Lifesaving lanYard) has taken to Zuma Beach in Malibu, CA and will hit 25 to other beaches by December. The sonar-equipped, remote controlled robotic lifeguard detects underwater movements of swimmers that may be in distress and zip over there at about 28 mph. She also has a camera and speaker so a human can add comfort from the boat or shore. Hydronalix, Emily's creator, plans to make them autonomous next spring and will sell them for $3,500.00 apiece.

(Thanks, Mike)

Cool, looks like she is a red-head. Are they going to make any blondes?
