Natural disasters are increasing all over the world, about 160 million people have been affected each year. Accordingly, many emergency bags for adults have been produced, but there is still no emergency bags for babies on the market. The thing that triggered my idea was the 2011 Tohoku earthquake in Japan. In this time, since nappy and milk were insufficient at the evacuation area, and it often arose situations that necessary supplies were not in hands of parents and babies. Therefore, I would like to solve this social problem and to bring peace of mind to families by designing the emergency bag for babies and parents.
Safety : This outside of the bag is made with waterproof and fireproof materials, and the inside is made with EVA mat which is soft for baby and is float on the water. These features will help families evacuate safely in response to various disaster. This bag weighs only 3 kg so that the parent can easily hold it with the baby. The bag can turns into a shoulder bag with hands-free by repositioning the shoulder strap. In addition, the GPS device attached to this bag, works with smartphones, to inform the safe situation.
Comfort : The main feature of this bag can be transformed into a baby bed with the comfort as the family spends time in the emergency. In busy places, sleeping in an enclosed area protects the baby from surrounding noise and dust and reduces the possibility of being kicked. This bag contains necessary items (diapers, milk and radio etc) to improve their lives in the evacuation area.
