rapunzel descending device by sin sun ho

There are a lot of equipments, which may come to mind, when it comes to the life-saving category. However, I'm sure there would be very few, which can help people trapped on top of a tall building to come down. Rapunzel is a portable descending device that helps those trapped in a high level of a building to reach the ground safely. It can be kept in any storage box fixed to the building.
