Russian Firefighters Create Hovercraft Using Water Hoses

This outrageous video from 2013 has only gone viral now. Impressively, a crew of Russian firefighters created a hovercraft of sorts using only a large metal platform and six high-pressure water hoses.

Firefighter Uses Google Glass For Faster, Safer Rescues

Google Glass seemed a bit gimmicky at first, but the power and potential of Glass is only being realized.

For example, Google Glass is revolutionizing the way firefighters battle fires and rescue the infirm, spearheaded by North Carolina firefighter and developer Patrick Jackson.

Now, building floor plans, hydrant locations, and car diagrams are just a phrase away.
