KeyBall / earthquake survival design

KeyBall
KeyBall

For this high-tech era, we need some ‘low-tech backup’ to protect our lives from harmful natural disasters like earthquake. So our design is earthquake survival product for victims in rubble to maintain lives. Each KeyBall provided compressed water, signal sound and light without artificial energy. To store them up in buildings before using, as a kind of decoration and guide signs during night, KeyBalls can be fixed on the right places such as crossbeams, windowsills or staircase guardrails. When disaster strikes suddenly, brackets which hold the KeyBalls will just be broke up and scatter KeyBalls over in the rubble for victims to use.
