Plane passenger seats become lifebelts in 10 seconds. New safety device for flying-boats

Plane passenger seats become lifebelts in 10 seconds. New safety device for flying-boats.
In preparation for the regular Atlantic service and also for the new Empire flying boats a new pattern "safety-seat" which can be converted to a lifebelt in under 10 seconds has been designed and incorporated in the passenger's seat cushions on the Imperial Airways flying-boats. Although weighing only 5 pounds, the two cushions - seat and back - can support a weight of 20 stones in water they have been specially manufactured, after 18 months research, on the secret "float on air" principle.
Photo shows: Donning the "safety-seat" lifebelt and smoking a cigar at the same time during a test in the water at Southampton.

Electricity to replace food.
A forecast that in the future light will take the place of food in providing sustenance for the human body was made by Professor A M Low in London, when he demonstrated the method by which he believes the new form of " diet " will be adminstered. It is considered that the energy taken from the body in the course of an average day s activity will be replaced more satisfactorily by electrical means than by the consumption of food as at present.
Photo shows ; Professor A M Low providing a " light " meal of the future in London.
