Imagine on all the days above 40 degrees mist is sprayed onto people passing by… Shame about the water restrictions though.
From Core77. The UK James Dyson Award goes to the Automist, by RCA students Yusuf Muhammed and Paul Thomas. The concept is of a (retrofittable) kitchen sink faucet that disperses a thorough mist in the event of a fire, effectively dousing the flames.
Each year more than 60,000 fires occur in UK dwellings, resulting in approximately 450 deaths and more than 11,000 injuries. Automist is an automatic fire suppression system. It is designed for the kitchen, where 60% of domestic fires originate. Automist utilises “water-mist” which is a proven technology on ships and in factories.
