Hateya Uses Augmented Reality Glasses To Help Firefighters Escape Burning Buildings

Hateya, Belgium's finalist for Microsoft's Imagine Cup 2013, says this is a leading cause of deaths among firefighters and a problem that technology can prevent.

To find his way out, the firefighter would just have to follow the arrows that will appear on the glasses.
