Automist can detect and put out fires

A life-saving student design that could replace the smoke alarm as the essential home gadget has won the international James Dyson Award. Automist, which was chosen from the final shortlist by inventor James Dyson, can both detect fires and put them out by aerosolising the water from a standard kitchen tap.
Automist can be fitted directly onto any standard kitchen tap to create domestic alternative to a sprinkler system. In the event of a fire, a wireless heat detector triggers the under-sink pump driving water through a nozzle – quickly filling the kitchen with a fine mist to put out the blaze.
