12th April 2019 Samsung’s subsidiary, Cheil Worldwide just made The Firevase, a flower vase that you can throw at a fire in order to extinguish it.
The vase contains a hidden chamber filled with potassium carbonate that suppresses oxygen when the vase is smashed. It also doubles up as a real vase for your fresh flowers.
100,000 of FIREVASEs were originally manufactured for a publicity campaign to promote the use of home fire extinguishers in South Korea as less than 60 per cent of households in Korea have fire extinguishers at home. Another 200,000 FIREVASES have since been produced as the product is well received.
