In case of fire in a skyscraper, we evacuate the building via the fire emergency elevator or the emergency stairs. But, it is hard for people to exit the building due swiftly to a capacity crowd by using the stairs.
Now that the number of persons to be accommodated is limited, we need concrete answers. "SLIDE TUBE" is the key. When the building is impacted by the severe impact, the tube which is fitted will begin to work through the airbag principle of cars. As the air is inserted in the tube, it becomes a slide. So, lots of people can escape from the building immediately and quickly.
