FINE: First INtelligent Extinguisher

fine-intelligent-fire-extinguisher1

FINE is a design concept that will have many people thinking, “Why didn’t I think of that first?”  It’s a robotic fire extinguisher that springs into action when a fire is detected.  If a person is home, the robot can be used like a normal extinguisher, but if no one is there it automatically dials the fire department while attempting to locate and put out the fire itself.  Benjamin Davoult and Baptiste Lanne came up with the idea after suffering an apartment fire that destroyed everything.  Add roomba-like functionality to the design so it can double as a vacuum cleaner and I’d buy two.  FINE has entered the James Dyson Award challenge.
