This virtual reality system has real force feed back hose, system a heat vest and a fully functioning variable nozzle and real smoke / flame calculation. The first of its kind to combine all these realistic elements in one VR-training system.

If you watch the video until the end, you will see that Neza is real tired afterwards, as if she was fighting a real fire!


Rescue RobotSee this rescue robot - demonstrated by the Belgian Fireservice - gently pick up a thin paper cup and give it to a man in the audience, climb over difficult terrain, and maneuver in dangerous situations where a firefighter could get injured or die.

It can also be equipped with gas sensors, radiation sensors, infrared cameras or anything a USAR team wants to add.
