Volcano / reheatable thermos bottle


Since disasters are not predictable when it may happen, it is ironic to have emergency supplies sitting in a closet at home. This is a product that is useful in our daily lives which also becomes beneficial in extreme situations. During a disaster, the most priority becomes getting access to clean drinking water. The simple method of boiling water will kill most vegetative bacteria and inactivate viruses to make water drinkable. The LEDs embedded in the lid lights up when liquid is heated, mimicking a volcano. This reheatable thermos bottle will reheat our everyday drinks as well as act as a boiling sterilizer in the case of a disaster.
