Tinkerball to the Rescue

Inspired by the events of 9/11, designers Jiyoung Choi & Namsun Do created the Tinkerball as a life-saving device for a variety of emergency situations from fires to earthquakes. The equipment uses a controlled cable and handle mechanism to serve as a descending life-line for those trapped in high places and needing to escape. Easily installed in apartments or offices, it’s a great life-saving solution for an often overlooked hazard.
