RESCUE CAPSULE / Product Design

RESCUE CAPSULE
RESCUE CAPSULE

The Rescue Capsule is designed for the vulnerable groups who can't escape from the scene of the fire within 90s.It is a ellipse capsule, with a breathing apparatus, a light, some first-aid medicine and a storage battery for the whole system. Normally, it inserts into the wall, only leaving a green indicator light outside. But when emergency, it will guide the people entering into the Rescue Capsule by flashing the green light. Then, the folding capsule will close, just like silkworm makes the cocoon to protect itself. Finally, the rescuers can find the trapped person precisely through monitoring system and implement the rescue in time.
