Ara Safety Pro — Wired's "Most dangerous object in the office this month"
Wrote Aaron Rowe in the July 2012 issue of Wired, "If an actual flame-and-smoke crisis ever erupts in the break room, we're ready. The Ara Safety Pro is like the do-gooder offspring of a fire extinguisher and a smoke grenade. Just pull the pin and toss the 9-pound projectile directly into the blaze. It spews a nontoxic aerosolized powder that lowers heat and chemically blocks the chain reactions that keep the fire burning."
$997.50 apiece when you buy two or more.

What a great, great thing, worth the price, methinks, but hard to part with that kind of money on the possibility that it might happen. I want one, but...two or more?...head back in the sand.

Next time I have $1,000 just laying around, that's what I'm getting.

Fire extinguisher grenades are an old idea although this one seems to work great. It seems weird that they haven't been more widely used. There are some from back in the 1800's.
