James Halliburton was one of the (smart) entrepreneurs who turned down money from the Dragons' Den TV show.  His invention, the Waterbuoy, is basically a keychain fills a strong balloon with a flashing light when submerged in water.  The Waterbuoy can float items weighing just over 2Lbs.  Very cool idea, not sure why but I really want one.  Watch the video of the waterbuoy in action after the break.

    Nooooo, curse you James Halliburton!! I just had the same idea… but seems like I’m 10 years late 😀

    Seems like I’m gonna have to come up with something else to become a billionnaire 😉

    Great invention, brilliant and would have saved a fair amount of boaties, specially after a few beers ! Nothing more to say. I’m ordering one right now!
