Sidewinder Firefighters' Mask Has Every Bell and Whistle A Lifesaver Could Hope ForS

Let's get a rather important fact out of the way first: it's just a concept. Little boys reading this should cross it off their list to Father Christmas now, before their hopes rise even higher.

The Sidewinder, designed by Jordan Swartzentruber, is a Self Contained Breathing Apparatus, created in that magical, faraway Concept Land where firefighters use the mask to aid breathing when in thick smoke. It also features a voice amplifier—for yelling at cats to get out of trees—plus GPS, a flashlight and a small outer display for reading information on each particular situation. It probably auto-tweets to Twitter too—most things seem to these days. [Tuvie via GearFuse]
