AIRDROP / detector

AIRDROP
AIRDROP

「AIRDROP」is a detector which can detect the mudflows disaster in the mountain area. The design concept is combine with the toy-「bamboo dragonfly」and the technology-「RFID.」
While the influence of globe warming, mudflows disaster occur frequently. If we can get the warning of mudflows soon, the effect of disaster will be reduced more. Therefore, we can use the detector by throw it in the air to distribute over the mountain area. Then we track the location of RFID. If the mudflows is happening, the location of RFID will be detected with unusual vibrating or moving. In the same time, the alarm nearby will make a sound to warn the people run away.
