Escape Wheel

In recent years, more and more accidents were reported in China because of flood or mistake operation causing falling into water, where it is hard to open the door without power and under big pressure. The Escape Wheel is designed with a safe cone at the top part, which can be removed easily in accident and be used to break the window. There is a spring in it, storing energy and converting 50N strength into a pressure of 4000MPa, allowing the driver to escape even they are not strong enough.
