Tactile Helmet Could Help Firefighters Find Their Way

A specially-adapted 'tactile helmet', developed by researchers at the University of Sheffield, could provide fire-fighters operating in challenging conditions with vital clues about their surroundings.

These signals are transmitted to vibration pads that are attached to the inside of the helmet, touching the wearer's forehead. Rescue workers, such as fire-fighters, who might be working in dark conditions or in buildings filled with smoke, will be able to use the signals to find walls and other obstacles that could help guide them through unfamiliar environments.

I saw Randolph Mantooth at the conference last year and am looking forward to seeing him again. Below is a nice interview with the actor by ems1.com about the conference.
