    Hello! Newbie here

    I am joining this forum because I am looking to gain information and feedback. My background is personal fitness and health for
    women, and I am going to be creating and maintaining a blog for a new company. One of the first projects I’m doing is gathering goodcontent and places for information that I’ll be able to refer my readership to.

    This newly forming company will be launching a solution aimed at providing safety and security for women early in 2013. I am very
    excited to see a solution like this. It will give you a sense of security and confidence when you enter potentially unsafe areas.

    This is a technology solution that makes use of Smartphone Bluetooth technologies built into the phone. For example if a woman felt
    herself in a dangerous situation, a simple swipe of the device would emit the strongest legal dose of pepper spray at her attacker,
    while simultaneously taking 3 pictures of the attacker, and announce that this picture has been submitted to local authorities, while
    sounding a loud alarm.

    This device makes use of GPS tracking capabilities to provide authorities of the exact location that the incident takes place. Further,
    we are offering a monitoring service providing direct contact to a support team that will be automatically connected by phone.
    This service could make a 911 call, call to local police or campus police, the person’s behalf, in the cases where you are unable to do so yourself.

    I believe that this device can truly empower women to be pro-active about their personal safety. I am interested in getting feedback
    from members of this forum.

    Welcome. Your idea is interesting, although I imagine seeing three pictures of my two-year-old getting a dose of pepper spray...

    Thank you for the warm welcome! I am grateful to be a part of this community. I currently reside in Georgia not nearly as warm as some climates this time
    of the year but not as cold as some either. Temp-wise it IS nice.... except for late summers with the humidity! Good excuse for a road trip to the mountains

    Well sure, but you've obviously never met my wife.
