Fires can be very scary and are of course very dangerous when out of control. In a matter of minutes, you can lose nearly all your possessions or worse, your loved ones. While it almost goes without saying that we have gotten a lot better at fighting and managing fires since the Middle Ages, people are always looking for new and improved ways of fighting fires.

That’s why a team of engineers have come up with the ‘Elide Fire Ball’, which is light-weight, easy to use, and pretty effective if the demo video is to be believed.
