There are several problems with the flame dousers that are installed in most buildings, and this Dyson Fire Extinguisher concept attempts to address many of them. Jonathan Bigot looked primarily at operation and aesthetics in order to modernize the lifesaving piece of equipment.
Most importantly, this house fire smotherer has been designed so that it can be managed with a single hand. This makes it possible for those with some physical disabilities to use it. A bright red handle is highly visible and easily graspable, with a pin and a trigger that you can control with little effort.
The grip takes a triangular form, emulating the universal emergency and danger symbol. It's light enough to hold and incorporates refillable cartridges for all types of fires.
