Next time you're on a train or a bus, take a look at that terrifying tool behind the smashable glass and picture yourself using it in an emergency. The Escape Shot is a great deal less intimidating than the hammers, axes and other implements typically provided to assist you in breaking your way out of a rail or road accident.

Jihyun Seo cleverly suggests incorporating several of these Escape Shots into the seat backs on board; they'd be practical as handles in everyday use. But come the occurrence of a collision or fire, they can be yanked out and used to shatter the windows. Like a slingshot, the Escape Shot can be pulled back and released from a safe distance, jerking back towards its suction cups on the pane and doing damage with a steel point.
