In Australia, every summer we’re faced with the dangerous burden of fires which lead to many homes and, more importantly lives being lost each year. There have been various innovations that have helped detect the rapid nature in which a fire grows such as, fire extinguishers and fire blankets, though it seems Australia’s bushfires are growing more rapid and stronger every year. This year a new innovation has landed, 5aver is a new form of technology which can help save lives. This practical innovation consists of a flashlight and respirator in an all in one functional unit. At the scene of a fire it will activate in five seconds and filters 92% of toxins in the air. The 5aver is functional for a full five minutes, the designated time period in which a person is meant to leave a fire. It’s a compact and colourful device which comes in bright red and orange and can also be formed into many configurations and can be used in all locations in high visible areas including schools, museums and office buildings. New products such as 5aver is a solution to an ongoing development where technology is leading the way in helping save lives one invention at a time.
