In this modern age, more and more innovations and inventions are being put out to the world to change the way we deal with things. While some inventions – like most mobile phones nowadays – are diversifying their ability to cater to our every whim, most gadgets usually try to keep it simple by addressing a very specific need.
One thing that a lot of people are always on the lookout for is the feeling of safety and security. Whether they are on the road, at school, at work, or even in the comfort of their own home, people need to feel that they are as far away from danger as possible.
While we can always rely on our friends, family, coworkers, and the kindness of strangers to help us feel safe, sometimes we’re on our own. That, or we are managing an entire business and need help keeping everyone else safe. Here are a few innovations that cater to that need for security.
While most security cameras nowadays feature a ton of technological advancements to help identify the culprit, they still cannot help prevent crimes from happening. With a combination of artificial intelligence and motion recognition, Athena Security can help stop crimes before they even happen.With its ability to detect dangerous motion such as the pulling out or waving of a gun, Athena has the best security camera system.
Another of its great features is that Athena can actually speak to the perps, and attempt to defuse the situation, all while it alerts the authorities and sends information to help them locate the criminal. It’s currently being used by a few schools to help prevent the huge casualties that usually accompany school shootings.
Crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and GoFundMe have all brought about a slew of really great gadgets that are quite innovative. The crowdfunding platforms have enabled a ton of successful products that have become really popular like the Oculus Rift, Exploding Kittens, and even the Fidget Cube to come to the market.
While it appears that most crowdfunded projects are mostly in the entertainment and gaming industry, there are a few class acts like Canary. Canary is a home security system that is easy to install and configure. With a high-definition camera, audio, and microphone you can easily monitor everything your Canary device sees from its accompanying app.
Another great feature of Canary is that it monitors other invisible home factors like temperature, air quality and humidity. This can help you check for incidents other than trespassing or burglary.
This next invention doesn’t require you to be a tech freak to use and is especially helpful for women. Undercover Colors recently released an easy to use date rape drug test called the SipChip. Their single use drug tests simply require just one drop of a drink suspected of being spiked, and the results appear in as fast as 30 seconds. Drug-facilitated sexual assault is serious business; everybody wants to feel safe when they want to have fun, and SipChip is one such invention that helps party-goers feel safe and secure.
