The Auto Parachute is an emergency escape parachute designed to allow people to escape from tall buildings. It opens automatically after descending a certain distance on the basis of its streamlined shape and the intensity of the wind. Equipped with a bright LED light, which is powered by the electricity generated by the wind, users can be easily located, even in smoky areas, and the first-aid kit included makes it possible to treat any initial fractures, burns or abrasions even before rescue workers arrive on the scene.
