The project is a recycled plastic made buoy on which we attach bottles in order to allow a better orientation in submerged villages in Kerala.

## Presentation of the project
The buoy help answering to the orientation problem in Kerala after flooding. In fact, this device would allow people and helping boats in submerged regions move more safely to reach a safer place. The roads would be delimited, so no boats woud be damaged in the process of helping people. The recycled plastic used to create this buoy is a durable way to have a rigid, resistant to impact and light device in Kerala's villages. Its simple shape allows a quicker realization, but still procures the visibility needed to help the population. In order to keep the indian landscape free of installations, we placed it in the ground with an automatic device that ejects it when needed. The buoy would procure populations permanent and floating landmarks placed in strategic places (each side of the road and crossroads). The Fablab would be useful because of the machine to schred and melt the plastic as well as cutting with the CNC, but it can also help with the diffusion of the project so people can bring improvements.

### Position
The buoys would be placed on each side of every road of the submerged villages, and also at the crossroads (as represented on the image under). The codes of navigation will be used in order to have a good comprehension from every fisher boat that is confronted to it. They will need to pass in between the green and red buoys, with the green at their left (and therefore the red one at their right). There are also yellow buoys in case of danger or obstacle in the middle of the road. This implies the need of a helper going first to see if there are any, the simplicity of the buoy is then very practical because they can have some buoys to place with them. The location at crossroads allows people to orientate themselves as well as defining the roads and their width.

###Assembling
### Assembling
The buoys would be underground already assembled and attached to the ground. When the water would start to rise, the device would eject the buoy automatically and it would be floating straight on the position where it was placed. That way, with the colors of the bottles (red or green) people would know where is the road and its dimensions, they could also see the crossroads and find a way to get away safely. As pictured under, the plastic central part would compose the top of the box and when the water would rise, it would come in the box which will make the plastic part float.
