Aesthetically pleasing application of technology for a safer community. A couple questions: -Was the size by design or by necessity? -How is it notifying 'people within 300 yards'?

https://www.hsn.com/products/911... $99/includes lifetime service. Standalone 911 emergency dialer using GSM networks. Calls real local emergency services. Realistically, nobody is going to be wearing this as a fashion accessory. You'll put this on when you think you might need it, so functionally it's no different than wearing this 911 pendant on your neck or belt. Personally, I find the standalone nature of the 911 device much more comforting then a bluetooth device that requires tethering to a phone (and presumably an app)

@wuss Wow apparently they need a designer over at the 911 offices ahahahah I kind of agree with you though... with a ring that size, nobody's gonna wear it full time, most likely it will swim at the bottom of a purse. I'm not sure it's the best form-factor for something like that.

"Nimb is a ring with a concealed button that can send an alert message with your location to your friends and family, emergency services and the Nimb community when you’re in trouble."

Cool and important, but pretty expensive

I wonder how this is better than maybe an Apple Watch complication which, when pressed, notifies people in the same way. Or in WatchOS 3, just hold the side button for 3 seconds and it does the same thing...
