Designed for alerting communities of impending natural disasters and where to find refuge, the 'Noah Balloon' system is a location indicator intended for identifying shelters. The 'Noah Balloon' system could be utilized on a roving basis to enable emergency professionals to indicate where to find help or as a permanent installation.

Designed by Jogn Chan Kim and Daewoong Park, the 'Noah Balloon' location indicator borrows balloon's design aesthetic from the little red indicators on online maps.

The 'Noah Balloon' could be used in the event of an earthquake, tsunami or a tornado and help citizens to quickly locate where to find help in the form of a shelter or aid. In a world that's increasingly being plagued by natural disasters, this concept could soon become an effective reality.
