Volcano Diver Uses AR to See Through Smoke and Fire




Sam Cossman is an Explorer and Entrepreneur who has ventured into some of the world’s most extreme places. He was inspired by his sojourn into a fiery volcano to co-create exponential technologies that could aid in disaster relief. He and his co-founders, Dr. John Long, Omer Haciomeroglu and Bahar Wadia developed Qwake Tech, the C-THRU /Augmented Reality system to help firefighters get in and out of the fire 5 x faster. C-THRU provides real time navigation through a transparent AR display placed directly within the firefighter’s line of sight.
