In maritime accidents, victims quickly become separated and scattered over the water’s surface. The Network Tube is a flotation device that seeks out others and rafts them together to increase the likelihood of survival and rescue. The Network Tube is GPS enabled, and uses tethering lines and magnets to connect and then link up to other Network Tubes.
