Life Pebbles point the way out of a burning building

The grand prize winners of the recent Seoul Design Competition, Kim Woo-sik and Jun Yoo-ho of Korea's Konkuk University, inadvertently brought firefighting into the realm of sci-fi. Their creation is called the Life Pebble, a device that straps to the back of a firefighter and releases fluorescent pebble-like objects that help the firefighter find his way back out of a smoke-filled building. Despite the humorous human waste implied metaphor, and the device's resemblance to NOMAD, this is probably going to save lives in the future.
