The Life Tube is a thesis design concerning a fire emergency self-rescue kit. It can be deployed into a regular fluorescent light system. When a fire occurs, the Life Tube automatically drops the needed supplies for occupant escape, including a directional light, toxic gas filter, and oxygen mask.
In this paper, I will state the problem of current fire emergency products and the development of my solution, a fluorescent lamp replacement concept. Also included herein is the process of the design, from ideation to working model, as well as the process of setting up the thesis show and graphics.
