Self Defense and Technology
There is a new, amazing pepper spray product coming soon, that I first noticed on my Facebook feed: http://www.getthedefender.com/
Here is why I find it so amazing:
- 24/7 monitoring with GPS. It lets the police know exactly where you are when you spray it
- It connects to your smartphone, and has a camera in it. It takes a photo of the assailant as you spray, and sends that photo to the authorities
- It has a siren to get you the attention you need in an emergency
- AND it’s the highest concentration of pepper spray allowed.
What are your thoughts? Does this seem like something you, or someone you love could really use? I am amazed at how many tools they have combined into this one product design.
I love this idea! As one who doesn’t feel comfortable with conceal and carry weapons, I think this is a great alternative. And I like all the tech bells and whistles, they’re nice deterrents.
