The Hurricone not only warns of a wet floor...it also dries it. An internal fan blowing all 360 degrees up to 15 feet works on battery power for up to 12 hours on a single charge.
This will probably reduce the number of slip and fall lawsuits.
Implications - Entrepreneurs know that to attain commercial success, they must create an original product that improves on previous versions to address a specific niche. Caution cones, which appear in nearly every commercial building in the world, warn pedestrians of wet floors and hazardous surfaces; unfortunately, the traditional caution cone doesn't do anything to fix the issue. By installing a 360-degree fan into the cone, this designer is able to augment an omnipresent item in a useful fashion.
