Any suggestions on a science project/machine using solar power?

solar powered emergency distress transmitter

the solar cell charges a battery enclosed in a floating plastic cube, when the ship goes down, the device flips over, a small switch ( mercury switch) automatically turns on a distress transmitter andf small strobe light, the solar cell keeps the device charged for three days till the coast guard gets there

the same ides could be used for skiers maybe
