Life-Balloon
Life-Balloon

In earthquakes, most casualties are caused by fallen ceiling and floor slabs. to reduce d, we designed this Life Balloon, it is a big strong airbag, and its structure is inspired from the safety airbag in vehicles. It can be placed in the building, when earthquake comes, it detects the shock of floor and is pumped up in a very short time, form a strong support structure and make a safe space for those trapped by wreckage. In this way, the survivals can have more chance to survive from the dangerous ruins.
