ARMADILLO

Armadillo is a survival backpack looking like a shell, which includes first aid equipment, a GPS and a light, to be spotted by rescuers easily. It also includes an empty pocket, which can be filled according to one’s needs.

The user grabs the bag from their house and leaves their home in order to look for a safer place. He then opens the shell, inspiring by an armadillo, transforming the backpack into a cocoon in which he can sit in. As the Tuaregs, one can sit still a long time thanks to a belt going around his knees and back. One adult can fit in.
The comfortable seat protects the user’s legs from the hard floor. A blanket made out of Gortex with reassuring colors inside allows the user to stay from condensing and keep warm. Parts of the backpack outer color and blanket are reflective to be easily seen by rescuers.

How to create a comfortable environment for a person waiting to be rescued?
