Escape shot / Emergency Hammer

Escape shot

Discipline: Product

Escape shot

Discipline: Product

This design is an emergency device that can help passengers to escape from a bus in an emergency. Passengers can press the button that triggers the escape hammer to break the window automatically in case of an emergency. Thus people can get out of the damaged vehicle quickly.

The design of this instrument which helps an emergency escape using the principle of elasticity, is a good example for design and semiotics that explain the use itself.
Jury Statement
I am very glad that our product received the IF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD 2016. Many thanks to the organizing committee and everybody who supported us. Life is most precious for everyone and I hope our design can help save more lives. We will step up our efforts on the design way.
