Create your Own Spinoff

Include sketches and examples of your brainstormed ideas.

The recent firefighters suits weigh about 50-75 lbs. A invention I can use from nasa is the ribbed suit materials and mix it with the firefighter fire resistant gear to make it move faster and be fire resistant. This will make the suit weight less and be able to move more swiftly. This can help the firefighter get out of sticky situation.

My spin off product with be a firefighter suit that will weigh less than the fight suits we have now and not be as hot in the summer time. I can use from nasa is the ribbed suit materials and mix it with the firefighter fire resistant gear to make it move faster and be fire resistant.

The greatest obstacle I anticipate with designing my own spinoff of the firefighter suit is trying to make it even more lightweight and trying to reduce how hot the suit can get in the summer time. A possible design that could meet my criteria is making the suit more tighter to reduce the weight of the suit but still have the same or even better fire resistant gear on.
