An experimental wilderness / urban survival kit in a capsule with extreme minimalism and scale as the objective at the cost of practicality.

I made this ultra compact survival kit on a whim not to use for a live situation but as a practice in confined minimalism and study in function divergence.

To use whatever raw materials and specific tools that were already present in the workshop I was at, not buying or otherwise procuring any items from outside that room – just what I already had.

The 15 individual items fit snugly inside the pinky sized titanium capsule and can be used as a necklace pendant, zipper pull or added to a keychain.

The best survival kit is the one you make yourself to cover just a single or a few problems well, not as many as possible in the smallest space like this kit.

  1. Yes absolutely. First word which comes in my mind was also “cute”. But I hope it’s practical, too.

    Hahah, great little experiment.. and actually useful survival kit in extreme desperation. So small that the effectiveness to size ratio makes it pretty good.
