Firefighters all over the world risk their lives to save others in the heat of raging fires in various scenarios, from wildfires to urban accidents. In most cases, firefighters are required to dress up hastily within 90 seconds to reach ground zero, which may sometimes cause them to miss out on key accessories and equipment that could help save lives and properties faster, not to mention preserving their own lives in the process. To help aid firefighters through intelligent and functional design, Omer Haciomeroglu has unveiled an ambitious helmet concept that could spell the future of firefighting equipment: the C-Thru Smoke Diving Helmet.

The helmet features wire framing technology that allows the firefighter to map out his surroundings and locate victims without resorting to manual means that may cost time. It also is equipped with a communications system that eliminates having to bring a separate remote communicator  such as a walkie-talkie or phone. Finally, C-Thru also employs noise-cancelling technology to eliminate surrounding sounds and isolate the cries of victims as well as distinct, cracking sounds that can give leads to their direction.
