Haptic Relief Squad / Fire Mask

Haptic Relief Squad is a vibrating fire mask and system designed for visually impaired people. It is inspired from the fact that visually impaired people cannot evacuate from danger in cases of emergency. It can locate the place of victim and fire by internal devices, and guide the victims to the safety by vibration. Victims can also communicate with firefighters with internal walkie-talkie system if needed.
