Scenario: A common practice used by Police is called bottlenecking where they block off certain streets and force the flow of protesters to a point of conflict. In these restricted areas, protesters are beaten and arrested.
This network-independent wearable device can notify others blocks before entering a certain area if it’s under conflict. When a person presses their panic button, other devices that comes within 10 to 15 block radius will vibrate and blink to let people know they are entering an unsafe area or to find a safer route. This wearable works independently, with no need for a paired cellphone, making it ideal for third world countries where number of smartphones are still low.
