Be ready with Nendo’s Emergency Preparedness Kit

Japan has faced numerous natural disasters in its recent history, including in 2011 when the Great East Japan Earthquake struck the country. Since this disaster people are now seeking a more versatile solution that is appropriate for a variety of situations, which has spurred the development of an emergency preparedness kit that includes the bare minimum necessary for a city-dweller to make it to a place of refuge during an earthquake or other disaster.

Despite its compact design, Nendo’s MINIM+AID kit designed for Japanese brand SUGITA ACE offers a rich set of features, including a whistle to alert others of one’s presence, a radio, raincoat, lantern, drinking water and a plastic case, all packaged inside of a 5cm wide tube that is waterproof and floats.

The radio is equipped with manual charging functionality, which can also be used to charge smartphones, lanterns, or other devices via USB. The plastic case can be used to store medicine or anything else the user might deem necessary, and the tube in which the drinking water foil pouch is stored can also be used as a cup.

The kit is slimmer and more compact than conventional emergency kits, easy to carry and can be worn over the shoulder using the included strap. The design also makes it easy to keep it nearby and ready to go at all times. The outer tubing is available in silver, white, or black, and each tool is available in a selection of three different colours.

The Nendo Emergency Preparedness Kit is set to be released in June 2016 in Japan.
