Escape-C / Chair

Escape-C
Escape-C

I suggest the way to escape from the crisis in earthquake disaster. There are large risks of personal injuries in earthquake prone nation’'s school. The most critical problem inside of the building is that you do not receive protection from falling objects. In this situation, you can safely and quickly move to shelters by unlocking your chair’'s body and raising it above your head. The exterior of the chair's body, in the shape of a helmet, is made of metal flex amor, reducing shock. GPS is mounted inside, making it easy to locate isolated people in damaged buildings.
