Automatic Fire Extinguishers

The Conceptual 'Fireball' Puts Out Fires Using a Thermal Sensor

— July 13, 2016 — Art & Design
When a fire hits it can be difficult to think of the proper safety measures to take in the moment when panic-ridden fear strikes, which is why the 'Fireball' fire extinguishers designed by Jae Young Kim could be an ideal way to help put out the flames. The device is designed to be self-sufficient and take all the necessary safety action on behalf of the consumer so that they can focus on leaving the premises.

The 'Firebal' is a small spherical fire extinguisher that is designed to be automatic rather than manual. The device is able to detect flames and augmented heat with an integrated thermal sensor to immediately begin putting out the fire. In addition, the device is able to be used as a lantern to light a clear path in smoggy spaces.
