At the recently held Seoul Design Competition, the safety of brave firefighters served as the inspiration for the grand prize winners Kim Woo-sik and Jun Yoo-ho from Konkuk University in Korea. The two entered the competition with their concept of Life Pebble, a device which can assist firefighters in working their way out of a building on fire.

Life Pebble is an apparatus that is strapped on a firefighter’s back before entering a burning structure. It releases fluorescent pebbles, which illuminate to help firefighters find their way out of a building in heavy smoke.
