Aero X / Compact fire extinguisher

Aero X
Aero X

The purpose was to try to develop a product with a new take on trying to reduce the amount of fires in our homes. A new technology in fire suppression agents was investigated and implemented to develop a product using an already existing technology and making it more attractive to the consumer market. The goal with Aero X was to enable a more accessible product that more people would be confident using.
Putting out fires should be easy. And since the potassium nitrate mist is non-toxic, environmentally friendly and leaves no residue, it could be safe as well. Fire extinguishing should be as easy as turning off the TV!
