Poseidon Swimming System

Now this is damn cool. The Poseidon Swimming System is a computer imaging system used to detect when someone is drowning. Effectively, it tracks swimmers and sounds an alert to screens, sirens, pagers, etc. when a swimmer stops moving. How cool! This is an awesome application of imaging technologyĆ¢€”a field that typically only receives publicity for its security implications.

You might also be surprised to hear that this product has been around for several years.
