This Device Prevents Molestation By Calling For Help
It is a wearable gadget that is being touted as capable of helping in protecting women against assault. It is about the size of half a dollar and can be clipped easily to accessories or clothing. All that the user needs to do is to push a button and Athena emits a loud alarm while sending messages to your loved ones along with user’s location.
The gadget works by connecting to the ROAR mobile app. The app allows the user to set up an account and add emergency contacts that will be contacted upon pressing of the button. The contacts do need to have to install the app in order to receive these messages. Athena also features a silent mode that allows the user to send messages without sounding the alarm.
Athena cofounder, Yasmine Mustafa said, “Building these self-defense tools or safety tools, to us, is kind a short term strategy. The whole idea is educating young children on what constitutes a healthy relationship with the goal of not needing these devices one day.”
