Tumble Ball / Product design for recovery from wildfire

Tumble Ball
Tumble Ball

As we have witnessed the recent wildfires in Australia, the frequency of wildfires has been increased. One of the best ways to recover wildfire is to go through natural reforestation without human intervention.
However, as Global warming aggravates, making forest fires universal and common, artificial mediation became indispensable. Major limitation of artificial recovery includes capital, such as manpower and equipment costs. Tumble Ball is designed to solve this problem. It can disperse as many different types of seeds as possible like tumbleweeds, and it can also decompose itself on the ground, providing nutrients
to the nature.
