The FOMO Survival Kit isn’t really a survival kit. It’s what I would call artistic design, because rather than solving a purpose, it’s more of a form of expression. FOMO, or the Fear Of Missing Out, is a syndrome of sorts that describe how outgoing millenials feel when they miss out on any experience. The FOMO Survival Kit is actually a party invitation in disguise. It manifests itself in the form of a survival kit, playing with the idea of surviving the elements of the urban jungle. The Whistle is actually an audio invitation that plays out to you when you blow into one end, the compass does its bit by guiding you to your destination, while the flashlight brilliantly flashes out the time left to the party. Cool, isn’t it?!
