Frontline Gloves are an exciting new concept that would help keep firefighters connected and safe. Frontline Gloves would translate hand signals into words. I am intrigued.

Frontline Gloves have a series of LEDs on them that translate the meaning of a hand sign to all the members of the team. The gloves also double as a proximity detector, giving firefighters sight beyond sight in smoky rooms. Firefighters need all the technological innovations that they can get to keep buildings from burning and people safe.
