Be Protected Always! The ultimate bracelet with a built in stun gun and GPS tracker for your protection.
Vulnerability is real. Any form of assault is a serious and common problem individuals face when they step outside their home.
Whether you are a college student walking to your car late at night or an employee passing through a dangerous neighborhood on your way to work... you want to feel safe.
Though we cannot predict the outcome of a dangerous situation, we can definitely influence and help prevent one from escalating.
Creating a product that is inconspicuous but powerful enough to ward off potential attackers is ideal for individuals who want to be safe. With a device that is quick, accessible and equipped, you can go out with confidence.
Our team designed a wearable protective gear that holds a stun gun and GPS tracking device.
Key elements must be:
Lillian walks home late at night and unfortunately encounters a dangerous predator following her.
Mock-ups & Testing
We met together several times to discuss features and made a few mock-ups to test the different sizes of the bracelet.
We met often to go over features and key elements.
After sketching a few concepts we 3D printed a final mock-up.
Making a few clay models test the size on the wrist.
Bepa is a comfortable, wearable tech bracelet that provides a means of self-defense and includes a GPS tracker in case of abduction.
Feel safe. Be safe.
This project was a collaboration with Bethany Valderrama, Syhyin Wong and Lizzeth Sandoval for the Braun Design Competition.
