The 2nd prize winning project is designed by Gabriele Gunady and Sang-Il Na [Victoria, Australia] called Call Out. This project focuses on solving the emergency for anyone who is exposed to marine / aviation incident using light. Light can provide hope as well as visible linkable nodes in an everchanging situation, new yet familiar guidance in chaos. The attractiveness of brilliance sends messages visually to surrounding by pulsatile lights or sun reflective mater. Link and upgrade current lifesaver tools in plane/ship to soothe the shock, give directions, and to be seen.
In emergency, ‘Light-buoy’, huge float made of photoluminescence material with light emitted helium balloon feature, will instantly be inflated once reached water. The ‘glowing balloon’, personal photoluminescence float embedded on each life jacket, will stand out in the dark, creating a meeting node for survivors. Top of the balloon emits SOS signal at night, yet also reflecting sunlight during the day.
