Portable High-Rise Evacuation Kits
The Tinkerball Life Rescue Device Makes Escaping Danger Easy

Those who fear being trapped in a high-rise building are going to be all over the Tinkerball Life Rescue Device. This conceptual lifesaver was created by designers Jiyoung Choi and Namsun Do. The Tinkerball is meant to be used in emergency situations involving large office buildings.

The conceptual device effectively acts as a self-contained rappel system. The Tinkerball Life Rescue Device can be used to bust through glass windows. Once the window is broken, the device can be attached to a fixed surface. There is a body harness and a line of cord that lets escapees safely rappel towards the ground. Skyscraper disasters are few and far between, but it’s never a bad idea to plan ahead. That being said, it doesn’t seem like the Tinkerball Life Rescue Device will go from concept to reality any time soon.
