I know what you are thinking when your eyes first chanced upon the name of this disaster-ready helmet’s name, the i-MetH. No, this is not some sort of new age drug from the folks over at Apple, but rather, an invention from the folks over at KMW that will deliver a helmet which features wireless connectivity as well as an LED lamp. This lightweight i-MetH helmet will work best in disaster sites, and with a built-in wireless module in its ear pad, it would work great when transmitting signals to a distance of several hundred meters. Not only that, since it supports the 400MHz band that was specially set apart for low power wireless transmission, a full charge of its Li-polymer rechargeable battery would deliver around half a dozen hours of wireless communication.

As for the LED lamp, it boasts of a maximum output of 2W. KMW strongly believes that demand for the i-MetH helmet will be enough to justify its manufacturing costs, considering that the Land of the Rising Sun’s geographical position makes it prone to natural disasters.
