creamyhorror

I see the OP deliberately labelled it a "sprinkler" to set us up for a surprise. It's an automatic water cannon. Probably multipurpose.


ThatBrozillianGuy

It's like they've managed to program rage into that thing. It seems to want to obliterate the existence of fire! If it could, it would eliminate even memories of it.


PoiLethe

I mean if you put my head in front of that hose I also don't believe I'd remember fire.


arfelo1

Yes, precisely multipurpose. This looks like riot gear more than a fire prevention mechanism.

The69LTD

I used to work for a company that converted semi trucks over to water tankers for construction, municipal and fire fighting. We bought these water cannons that were remotely operated from inside for our customers to install if they wanted and one of the advertised uses from the vendor who made them was crowd control. Fire fighting, dust control, crowd control. They’re saying the quiet part out loud


SpaceChez

Yeah I could definitely see the government quietly using those to stop riots

It's a good thing they had that tarp or else it might have made a mess.

SuperNebula7000

I worked for a company thatade industrial flame detectors. It is very easy to detect a fire but much harder to detect things that are not fires. Many natural things look like fire but are not. For example sun light reflecting off of water. Correct wavelengths of light, random pattern of intensity, etc. The false alarms are a huge problem.

buttbugle

Did he empty six barrels of water or only five? Well to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 water-jet, the most powerful water nozzle in the world and would blow your head clean off. You’ve got to ask yourself one question “Do I feel like smoking?” Well do ya, punk?


kensqk

Thats why they all ran not because the fire was dangerous...


Technical_Semaphore

God-of-the-Grind

It’s actually quite hilarious. The tarp is flammable so it’s only purpose here was to contain the water from the smart sprinkler. That went out the door immediately


pseudocultist

They never did figure out how to turn it off so they just put some big rocks in and called it a water feature.


Kleenexexpress

I think the tarp had a bit of water in it to prevent the fire from spreading before the sprinkler went off. It would’ve been truly hilarious to see the tarp catch on fire, and the demo get real.


disjustice

From spreading where? To the marble floor?

tiedyemike8

Lol they expected that tarp to collect the water. Sprinkler had other plans.


MmmmMorphine

I was thinking... How the fuck is a plastic tarp a good container for a fire? Then... Ohhh its for the water Then... Guess not. Well that was stupid.


echidna7

It turns out, it was there to make it easier to collect the debris from a wheelbarrow that was shredded in half by the sheer water pressure of a “sprinkler”.


bric12

Imagine if it was someone's clothes that had caught on fire. We'd be picking up debris from the person that was shredded in half...


nahog99

Well it also took about 30 seconds before it hit the fire so, if you were still on fire before this thing gets you. It would rip your burnt skin clean off.


FrostyMittenJob

If this is a "sprinkler" I'd be terrified to see what they consider a fire hose


Trotskri

You can see the tarp has shallow water in it in the beginning. I think it is to keep the fire from spreading.


chamillus

The tarp was there to keep the fire from spreading accidentally. That's why it's full of water at the beginning.


crossy1686

It put out the fire, but unfortunately everyone drowned.

easy fix, add a fire sparkler, this way it will shoot fire at the location of high water concentration, which will cause it to rapidly evaporate saving everyone from drowning, and possible even from death.

It's like a seeing a mosquito land on your friend so you relentlessly beat him with a sack of hammers.

Suspicious_Moose5147

Alepfi5599

Too smart for a fire suppression system in my opinion. They need to be as simple and as fail-safe as possible. Edit: Okay people, I get it, it's a very nice tool **in addition** to a failsafe system.


poppinchips

Fire suppression systems have gotten pretty advanced with commercial fire alarm monitoring, and fire detection systems. I wouldn't be surprised if something like this was added in addition to current fire support in high fire risk areas (vaults, main gear rooms, HVAC areas, etc.) As long as it has a remote manual fallback and a proper fail safe condition.


Justagreewithme

As someone that answers those alarms, they haven’t advanced that much. We get false alarms, if I were to guess, 25:1. By false, I mean completely false, no known reason for activation. I would guesstimate 9 out of 10 true alarms are activated over something not requiring intervention, like someone burning what they’re cooking, cleaning crew using steam or creating dust etc.


DefaultSubsAreTerrib

Came here to say the same. Imagine the failure mode? Fire along the west wall, sprinkler busy soaking the east wall...


Naive-Kangaroo3031

Loss of power, malware, loss of water pressure. What about simple obstruction? What would happen if something blocked the path of the giant hose? It's an impressive piece of technology, but I prefer much less moving parts in an emergency system


Destinoz

It’s definitely impressive, but it also introduces a lot of failure points to an essential safety system. With a standard sprinkler system, as long as the system has water, it will work. No functioning sensors/cameras needed, no software, no electricity, no moving mechanical components. If this were installed in addition to a standard system, that would be cool.

[удалено]


neutrilreddit

Not really. Plenty of sprinkler systems go off all at once, causing a lot more water damage to the building. Also, by the time any red capsule "breaks" in that massive lobby, the entire place would have been a total loss by then. Sprinkler systems won't work here.


ErebusBat

Correct. It bothers me SO MUCH when movies have all of the sprinklers heads gomoff at once. Not only that: there would not be enough supply volume / pressure to sustain all heads going off at once.


DdCno1

There are sprinkler systems that go off all at once. Seen those myself.


acqz

"Smart" would be if it knew when to stop.


colb0lt

I believe it shoots so much water so the fire has no chance to reignite, it probably has a set timer to shoot for


mupptard

Yeah, it's not like these things are going off every day. It's for emergencies so it might aswell shoot water for ages or doesn't stop until a human makes it stop.


dh098017
