Where The Hel

None

"Where The Hel" is a pair of helmets: plain and funky. The funky helmet is 3D printed; the plain helmet visualizes proximity to the funky helmet as a function of signal strength, via an LED light strip. The funky helmet contains an Xbee and a GPS Radio. Its position is tracked via a web app. The wearer of the plain helmet can track the funky one via the web app and the LED strip on his helmet. These helmets are potential iterations towards a more developed HADR (Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief) helmet system.
