Elide Fireball Extinguisher?
 
Just saw a video on this Fire suppression device- ELIDE FIREBALL approx $250USD
http://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/elide-fire-ball/

Has anyone seen or used one? German Company, manufactured overseas (Thailand, I think). The ICEKEY product is a knockoff inoperable fake (at $49 it would be, wouldn't it?)
Amazon sells in the states.
Interested-if it works, its possibly a great fire suppression concept for larger engine rooms and sailboat cabins?
According to the specs, it engages at 159degreesF, if in contact with flame ( heat without flame doesn't set it off, apparently.)

In Germany you get it for 100 incl. VAT: www.elide-fire.com

I'm tempted as well especially above the engine, but a bit sceptical it might ruin it in case of faulty activation.
