First Sign- Smart Hair Clip

The First Sign hair clip is a tiny accessory you can clip on your hair or clothing, knows when you could be in danger and sends for help. The clip contains a gyroscope and an accelerometer, that detect physical assault like slapping, punching, or aggressive movements the second it happens. Immediately, the microphone in the clip starts recording, and the First Sign mobile app uses Bluetooth to access your smartphone’s GPS, camera and microphone to begin gathering of evidence. If you haven’t turned the hair clip off after 15 seconds, the information is then sent to a monitoring station and alert nearby emergency contacts and first respondents to your current location.
