Self Contained Breathing Apparatus Would Be A Boon To Firefighters

This Sidewinder Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) concept might make you look like a scuba diver, but it certainly would be very useful to firefighters, especially if you’re trying to avoid choking on the smoke. This mask ever features a regulator that can retract the air tube over the shoulder, reducing snag points. It also features other useful functions such as a voice amplifier, flashlight and heads up display in order for firefighters to perform their duty faster and safer. The built-in GPS system can also alert firefighters on the location of an injured coworker or even show directions to exit a particulator area. Sure seems pretty cool.
