An Irish teenager has come up with a product that is making the world an easier place to live in. At least for some people. A revolutionary design of a sleeping bag for the homeless is already being used by many homeless people.
Have a look at it here.
It contains three flaps that can be fastened around securely.
The testing of the product had come out successful, and it is now being put to use, saving the lives of the homeless.
The material of the sleeping bag is averse to fire and water both, making it all the way more safe and usable.
Emily Duffy, 15, the inventor of the sleeping bag, had this idea of making lives easy for the paupers, and so she developed this product.
Emily had to live rough on the street once while raising funds for the homeless. Then she had realized the need of such a bag. It being lined with bubble wrap, keeps the user dry, too.
The reflective material of the bag gives a high visibility in the night, which in turn protects the user from any accidents..
These are nicknamed as Duffily Bags, and are being manufactured and given out at an emergency accommodation centre in the middle of Dublin.
BT Young Scientist and Technology exhibition has praised this idea, where Duffy recently showcased her invention.
