Blaze warner
Blaze warner

Intelligent material can remember the shape, length or the modification. It transforms according to the temperature. In this case, Blaze warner extenses when getting heated by the fire at the opposite side of the door. It then gives the handle a contrary force to prevent people from bursting into a flaming space which may possiblly bring in the oxygen and trigger a flash burn.
This device can also apply to diverse kinds of knobs due to the highly changable property of intelligent material.
