Fire Gumball / Feuerlo

Fire Gumball
Fire Gumball

This is a special extinguisher that you can put out a fire by throwing it. Every kindergarten and elementary school keeps numerous fire extinguishers. However, it is too heavy and user-unfriendly for children to use. Fire Gumball is a solution for the problem. The motif of it is a gumball machine. The form and similarity with a gumball machine eases children’s unfamiliarity and inconvenience toward extinguisher. Meanwhile, a child is not mature enough to throw a ball exactly to the fire. However, thermal sensor of the extinguisher ball leads the ball exactly to the point under fire.
