The journey has accompanied human beings throughout their life. It is clear, however, that the needs, motivations, habits, and purposes of the present travelers have changed profoundly. People have the ability to move much more easily, our lives are less sedentary than in the past, in constant movement, so the need to travel light. The more you travel, the thinner your baggage becomes, you separate yourself from things and focus on the other, making a synthesis of the elements that are truly essential for living. Fire is one of these being able to produce heat, light and energy. Fireboost comes from the purpose of creating the electric current needed to charge the phone, another fundamental object to travel, starting from the impulse (“boost”) of the fire (“fire”).
Mobile technology can improve our travel experiences and the smartphone, in particular, is a very useful tool to take and share photos, stay in touch with people dear to us, use a GPS navigator, and make emergency communications. Fireboost allows you to stay connected even in the absence of grid, transforming the heat of the fire into the energy you need to charge up your device. Fireboost is a meeting between present and past, between technology and nature, between modern and paleolithic.
