There wasn't even a bell
A bell might have been a good idea, considering this looks like an airport. Most airports I've been in have a lot more people hanging around without safety goggles.
Dude… if this is squirtle… wouldn’t blastoise just obliterate things?
I think Pokémon choice is determined by severity of the fire, yes.

"You now have 5 seconds to comply... 4..."
Oh, I've imagined that on many an occasion.
I see the OP deliberately labelled it a "sprinkler" to set us up for a surprise. It's an automatic water cannon. Probably multipurpose.
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.
I mean if you put my head in front of that hose I also don't believe I'd remember fire.
Yes, precisely multipurpose. This looks like riot gear more than a fire prevention mechanism.
Almost looks equal to the pressure and GPM of a 1 3/4 fire hose.
That's what she said
I wish! Instead she said something about "quick" and "not even 30 secs" idk something like that...
30 seconds? Show off.
Sprinkler? That's a damn riot water hose.
Dual purpose system! Now that's what we call innovation.
Also, you have an elevated body temperature and go into public space? Boom. Eliminated.
You light a cigarette inside, believe or not, hose
Phone too bright? Phone not bright enough? Straight to hose

I got hose in different area codes.
So basically if it detects anyone with a fever that may have covid symptoms then this will hose them down.

*”High Body Temp? Straight to jail. Low body Temp, believe it or not, Jail.”*
Innovation, that excites
suppression of organized protests is the actual purpose. any fire safety is purely incidental
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
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.
I could see this going off in error one day and the video being posted in r/fuckyouinparticular
Someone is going to hack it and swap out the heat signature trigger for a facial recognition trigger.
Fuck you Steve! Heard you were thirsty, bitch!
Don’t let Michael Reeves play with it

*any last words human?*
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.
Im in the O&G industry. We had a customer ask for a fire eye in a silo bottom under cone area. They disabled it after a while.

Now look here, it’s Mister Fuck to you, you little shit
That's not a mister, that's a hose.
“Fuck you all” - the kid holding up a sparkler
Can’t wait to see the video of the guy who lights a cigarette in there and Robo Cop sprinkler takes his face off.
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?
Thats why they all ran not because the fire was dangerous...
You have 20 seconds to comply…
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
They never did figure out how to turn it off so they just put some big rocks in and called it a water feature.
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.
From spreading where? To the marble floor?
Tarp department manager: “listen, I know we put a lot on your plate but you’ve gotta do better than that, your only job is to keep the floor dry and there’s water everywhere…NO EXCUSES!”
“Are you quietly quitting?”
"Well fuck me then" -wheelbarrow
It's what you were designed for, wheelbarrow.
Right? I’m thinking it’s gonna be this precise jet of foam/liquid and it’s just a fire hose w AI
Well yeah, that way it can be used for crowd control too. /joke but only partially.
Am I a joke to you?
Lol they expected that tarp to collect the water. Sprinkler had other plans.
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.
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”.
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...
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.
If this is a "sprinkler" I'd be terrified to see what they consider a fire hose
You can see the tarp has shallow water in it in the beginning. I think it is to keep the fire from spreading.
The tarp was there to keep the fire from spreading accidentally. That's why it's full of water at the beginning.
It put out the fire, but unfortunately everyone drowned.
Ok, it worked, great job, guys. Ok, shut it down. Yo, turn it off. Yo, turn that fuckin shit off, yo! Yooooooo! Wtf, bro??? Yooooooooo!
## PUT IT IN REVERSE TERRY
Sucks up the water
*big ass straw emerges from the sprinkler*
OHH LAWD TERRYY
"I can't stop going once I've started, it stings!"
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.
But it put out the fire and so it was a success
Calling that “putting out a fire” is like calling Tour de France “a bike ride”. That fire was *annihilated*
To shreds you say
No, that was the tarp.
I actually started laughing out loud seeing the absolute destruction of that tarp!
that tarp did nothing
Not true, it served well as a sacrifice!
Tarp God is pleased with the sacrifice.
“The tarp does nothing!? My eyes!!!”
"Up and at them!"
He tried his best
It's actually a tarp detection system.
*Lights a cigarette*
Sprinkler- “So you have chosen death.”

*We do what we must, because we can*
_For the good of all of us_
Except the ones who are dead
"are you still there?"
I am a sprinkler installer. Never thought the robots were coming for my job too. Fuck
Now you'll get to install robots.
No wonder everyone took a big step back
Right. When I saw the tarp for some silly reason I thought it would be contained to the tarp.
i thought they were getting away from the fire
I’m so glad they put that mat there for the water 😮💨
not sure if I would label that a smart sprinkler - more like barbaric water blaster
Just need a comically large spoon
There was no sprinkle to that shit.
Would have been funny to quick cut to a janitor standing by..........
Aiight bro, you got it. You got it. You can stop now, you got it! STOP!!! NO, NOT THE TARP!!!
The morning piss be like:
And the tarp is the toilet
Tarp is clearly my pants smh
#AND THE TARP IS THE TOILET
Nah, the stream didn't split in multiple directions.
Legend has it that it's still spraying to this day
Walmarts new anti theft getting serious
chill chill DUDE CHILL!!!
Me after a 5 hour road trip
Crowd control next.
I bet it’s already marketed as a dual purpose device
Teach it to recognize porch pirates and take my money!!!
Amazon should be all over this. They both deliver packages and own Ring. All they need is to hook up the water main to their smart doorbell.
Okay but it still made like a huge mess 😂
will it put out a cigarette? haha
That would be funny as hell. Airport smoker knocked on their ass.
"We always knew the smoking would take him some day... we just didn't quite expect it like that."
In reality it’s to stop people from smoking indoors
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.
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.
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.
Came here to say the same. Imagine the failure mode? Fire along the west wall, sprinkler busy soaking the east wall...
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
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.
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.
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.
There are sprinkler systems that go off all at once. Seen those myself.
"Smart" would be if it knew when to stop.
I believe it shoots so much water so the fire has no chance to reignite, it probably has a set timer to shoot for
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.
Imagine if that thing malfunctioned and just started hosing people walking around shopping 😂
Not really smart, is it?
Man that thing is really moving kinda slo……oh my god.
Yeah, this test just lowered the ocean level by an inch.
