“Although this futuristic survival kit may seem a bit extreme for right now, it also has current practical applications. If someone had difficulties breathing, they may be able to use this in order to be able to breathe more freely.”
Back in 2013 Chiu Chih, a fictional reality designer from Taiwan, created this backpack with a plant in it after realizing a lack of breathable air may be the first problem we face if the apocalypse ever were to happen. The breathing apparatus that is attached to the backpack allows you to breath fresh oxygen.
Chiu Chih is certainly a designer ahead of the times. If there is any silver lining to the current events of today—I certainly look forward to the art, technology, inventions, etc. that will be created from all of this.
