Compass Alert System handles emergency situations

by Ally

When panic strikes in a crowded area people quickly become hysterical and don’t always remember which exit is closest.  In times when you need to get out fast, not knowing could cause injuries and even death in extreme cases.  These Alarm Compasses are designed to help you out in the event that you need to get out quickly and you can’t actually see any exit signs from where you’re standing.

Not only does this show an easy to understand bright arrow, but it also plays an audio track that states which direction you should be heading.  Having both visual and audio will help those with visual or hearing impairment as well as accommodating anyone that doesn’t happen to speak the native language within that area of the world.  This was designed by Mathieu Azema and right now it is still in the concept stage of things.
