Robot Lifeguard EMILY Patrols The Beach

Robot Lifeguard EMILY patrols the beach is the latest positive buzz story on the news and in my text messages. For those of you who know I help people on land buy and sell Santa Fe real estate, it may seem odd that I am beyond thrilled to share my name with a robot lifeguard designed to save lives by working on the team with human lifeguards. EMILY was named on the top 50 inventions in 2010 by Time Magazine. If you want to see how EMILY can save someone from drowning, watch the Youtube video below.

By the way, EMILY in the robot world is close to an acronym for EMergency Integrated LifesavingLanYard. She is a robotic buoy capable of swimming at 24 mph even through riptides to rescue someone from drowning. This summer remember to practice safe swimming habits as EMILY may not yet be on patrol on a beach near you. My congratulations to entrepreneur and engineer Tony Mulligan for making his vision a reality and showing us another positive use of technology!

David, the applications for sonar technology are staggering. This one is truly life saving.

Anthony, thank you for your comment and update on how EMILY is being used in fresh water as well. New Mexico has lakes today and hopefully I can help bring one to our state in the near future. I very much appreciate sharing my first name with your Robot and the cause that inspired you to make it a reality.

Gretchen and Mel, human are amazing when our dreams for these tools are aimed at positive good works.

Sandy, thank you! I'm still in awe of what EMILY the robot can do. Now, I'm wondering what Emily the human will do to make a difference as well!

Emily -- as a former lifeguard (at a county park on a lake) this would not have been much help for us, but I can see multiple areas where it could be useful -- like in Lake Washington, and throughout Puget Sound.
