4 Hi-Tech Escape Chutes

Do you need an escape chute from your life? We all do at some point, but it can be hard to install one at home, work, or in a relationship. Perhaps, though, emerging technologies offer us options. The design blog Core77 rounded up photos and videos of 4 advanced escape chutes that help people get out of dangerous situations, such as burning skyscrapers.

Pictured above is a Viking Escape Chute, which is designed to get workers off oil rigs quickly. It automatically deploys a long, multi-leveled escape chute that ends in an automatically deploying inflatable life raft. The video below shows a test of the system in a shipyard in Okpo, South Korea.

Which is why plane passengers are told to remove shoes before using an escape slide. Work boots take a while to get off, meanwhile the rig explodes. Back to the drawing board.
