In a video shared by Anand Mahindra on Twitter, a man is talking about a unique T-shirt that inflates under water and can protect children from head injuries. Mahindra wrote in the caption, “It may not win the Nobel Prize, but it is worth more than those inventions for me, because as a grandfather of two young children, their well-being and safety is my top priority.”
In the video, a man dresses a small child-sized mannequin in a T-shirt and throws it swiftly into a small pool of water. Air fills the mannequin’s T-shirt and it floats up. This unique t-shirt has been developed by a French company named Floaty.
This may not get a Nobel prize but it ranks higher than those inventions for me. Because as the grandfather of two young kids, their wellbeing & safety is my highest priority. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 @Rainmaker1973 , pic.twitter.com/ZaSyVMqZG9
