Fire Drone
Design by Adam Tóth

An experiment or a vision? What does that mean in design? We may intuitively feel that this should be an interesting issue that the author tries to solve in an untraditional way. The topic of saving people and property in case of fire by a flying transport system controlled remotely does correspond to that idea.

The product – a fire drone – has no ambition to solve all of the issues connected with fire extinguishing, the author logically defines the issues and scope of use of the appliance designed as well as its expected parameters. The design is bent to functionality and represents an artistically sensitive author. The commission appreciated the concept of the new fire extinguishing method, the aesthetic quality of the product and the communicativeness of the presentation. The vision of fire drone proposed enriched the contemporary trend of flying toys and camera systems present in the field of games and entertainment with a new dimension. The experiment does not belong to the category of unfeasible dreams, but may inspire and spark off formation of a real product.
