Ewinea / smoke defecator


We propose a product that purifies toxic gas and helps people to escape the situation safely.
First, the product directs people to emergency exit by emitting the LED light in the fire.
Then, when ‘EWINEA’ is thrown, it absorbs the toxic gas, providing oxygen and ventilating the environment simultaneously.
The product takes in the toxic gas through the fan, and this gas goes through the filter.
Because of this absorption of gas, people can breathe fresh air and secure a clear view.
Again, the LED light from the parting line of 'Ewinea' helps find the way to the exit.
'EWINEA' can reduce the death rate from fire accidents.
