Transfer - Fire emergency / Energy transformation

Transfer - Fire emergency
Transfer - Fire emergency

Power outages often occur during fires, leaving people to escape in the dark. Thick smoke also often leads to inhalation injuries. These are all major reasons for severe injuries and casualties during a fire. Transfrt-Fire Emergency comes with a built-in thermoelectric power generating module. Using the temperature difference of a human body and the room, this device can generate power to activate an alarm and LED light. The orange part towards the back includes a temperature sensor, automatically providing oxygen for users when it senses body temperature nearby, effectively lowering casualty rate in a fire.
