We're planning to do an emergency lighting system and we want to add some twist on it. What do you think should we add? Answered

Well, first, make it solar powered. So, y'know, if the power goes out, you're good. Make it look modern and soothing.

An illuminated display with the words, "DON'T PANIC" written in large, friendly letters.

You know, so people won't panic.

It's emergency lighting, there should be no twist they have one very important job to do, other than maybe some redundancies to make sure it will work even if the main power system fails.

There is the possibility to maybe integrate some sensors but in most cases if you have emergency lights those systems are already in place.

If you really need to add something perhaps speakers that direct you to the nearest exit would be helpful.

Yes

No

Yes

No...

Right now I can only think about one twist: Missing patience :(
In most forums it is considered rude to post in capital letters as it refers to shouting in real life.
Similar story for creating double postings in different sections.

Question: Why do you have the need to create multiple threads with the same content?
Next one: Ever heard of Google? ;)

Is this another student wanting their work done by someone else?

Brain storm between the team (look up how to do it correctly)

look at other commercial options

Look at design sites like design boom

Put emergency lighting into google images.

My ideas are probably invalid because I don't know enough about your constraints:

size

material

skill level

budget

time scale

Whet does "a twist" mean
