Rise of the HUD

Wear­able tech is go­ing pro­fes­sional, with Google Glass-alikes head­ing where other gad­gets fear to tread

Turk­ish de­signer Omer Ha­ciomeroglu’s evoca­tive con­cept aims to help fire­fight­ers spot vic­tims through dense smoke; look­ing like a stormtrooper is just a bonus. A ther­mal imag­ing cam­era up front sends data over Wi-Fi to a

hand­held de­vice con­trolled by a col­league out­side of the blaze. This gen­er­ates a 3D out­line of the scene and projects it on to the vi­sor of the fire­fighter – or “smoke diver” as its cre­ator prefers. Heat pro­tec­tion and

breath­ing ap­pa­ra­tus are also, un­sur­pris­ingly, built-in.
