Since the 2004 Asia tsunami, there has been a glut of designs and competitions aimed at better aid distribution in crisis zones. Most are unremarkable and not particularly well developed solutions. The ‘Bedu’ Emergency Rapid Response by Toby McInnes is a breath of functional air. It is designed to fit within the current logistical framework and features just about everything you could possibly need. All rolled up neatly in a barrel. If only it assembled itself.

Emergency response kits usually are pieces of equipment that do their duty in a quiet, efficient way but don’t look too exciting or radical. Talking about exciting and radical, here is one emergency kit that aims to change the rules of the game with its fresh, innovative approach. Designer Toby McInnes has packed in a whole load of emergency equipment into a smart barrel design called the Bedu. The Barrel shaped Bedu comes in a bright orange colour to make it very visible. Inside this Bedu is where all the innovation lies. * j4 F. a0 b- ^. t

5 r" i K( ]* P# S0 mAlmost everything that you might need in an emergency is neatly modularized and packed into the Bedu. A multifuel stove for cooking and heating, a microfilter filtration system, a medical kit, a tool kit and a hand driven generator are the pieces of equipment which will help you survive almost anywhere. And to house all this, the Bedu even manages to squeeze in a shelter replete with its own lighting rig. Amazing, is all i can say after looking at the tremendous functionality the Bedu brings in its funky barrel.
