Being stuck on top of a burning skyscraper may not be such a problem if Sin Sun Ho's Rapunzel Descending Device ever goes from concept to reality. The Rapunzel is an emergency grappling hook designed to lower users to safety in the event of an emergency.

The Rapunzel Descending Device is simple enough to use requiring only that you put your hand inside of it and grip a handle. Once the device detects the weight it will start to lower you to safety.

Using the Rapunzel Descending Device to escape a burning building may sound scary, but when you look at the alternatives, it's not all that bad.
