Who said a typical window breaker had to be tucked away in the dark corners of your vehicle? This glass breaker that doubles as a hammer and designer accessory breaks all those notions!
More often than not, we tend to hide emergency equipment like window breakers, simply because they don’t blend in very well with the interior of the car or tend to get overlooked because they are rarely used. . This can have serious repercussions in an emergency when you desperately need to smash the glass to get out. A circuit breaker stowed in a hidden compartment or in the trunk of the car – inaccessible in case you get stuck in the front seats can mean the difference between life and death.
The Objemer Emergency Car Window Breaker brings the element of reason and clever design to the good old glassbreaker. The emergency use accessory designed for Escape Lab (a Korean startup) by BEBOP Design overcomes the dangerous behavior of hiding typical circuit breakers in places where they will ultimately not be found when they desperately need them. The idea here is to make it blend in with the typical design of the car’s dashboard and storage compartment so that the designer accessory is always at hand – ready for use.
The Objemer’s USP is its intuitive rectangular design which is an eye-pleasing accessory when not in use. As it is CNC machined, the designer has managed to achieve a very precise and precise shape that looks great and most importantly keeps the edge just in the right place. If necessary, the sharp end of the window breaker concealed in the magnetic holder can be put to good use. It is made from a single block of metal and also acts as a makeshift hammer for odd tasks. Although the design house does not explicitly mention any other dual utility of the car escape tool, I can consider it a surprise self-defense prop because you never know!
