  1. This came across my Twitter feed just the other day…. Do you think the concept would be useful in an emergency situation? I do not know much about how firefighters work, but I imagine they may not have time to turn the displays on and off with their fingers, and to read all of them. The idea seems good, but the implementation seems a bit cumbersome.
