The Samsung Firevase, A Flower Vase That Doubles As A Throwable Chemical Fire Extinguisher

March 29, 2019

This is a promo video for Samsung's Firevase, a flower vase that has a reservoir for water and flowers as well as a sealed chamber of oxygen-suppressing potassium carbonate inside that can be thrown at a fire to help extinguish it. Just make sure your aim doesn't suck because you only get one shot at this. No pressure or anything, just make sure you actually hit the fire or your house is toast.

Keep going for the video while I panic and throw a relative's ashes instead of a Firevase.

Thanks to Closet Nerd, who agrees when in doubt, throw something at it.

    Samsung is such a large percentage of the Korean economy that distributing these to reduce fires is a wise investment.

    ...arguably more effective than throwing a shoe at a fire.

    I love when old technology is brought back with a series of marketing wank claiming it's new... Like the air-pressure tube transport system or firefighting grenade or electric car or reusable rocket or... basically everything Elon Musk has done isn't an invention.

    Man, whatevs; watching Falcon Heavy’s boosters land was one of the coolest things I’ve witnessed in my entire lifetime...

  • GeneralDisorder

    It was cool as fuck but not an invention per se.

    Get a free one with every galaxy note.

    If only we could figure out what inspired Samsung to invent a handheld item that stops a fire instead of starting one...

    *hits chief firefighter in the face*

    1st!!!! Neat idea!!! I’m throwing a bunch of spray paint cans into a fire just because I can.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Spray paint makes a really fun boom. Just get behind something and you'll be okay... Not so much your hearing.
