BEPA

Be Protected Always! The ultimate bracelet with a built in stun gun and GPS tracker for your protection.

Problem

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.

The safety

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 solution

Our team designed a wearable protective gear that holds a stun gun and GPS tracking device.


Key elements must be:

  • discrete

  • accessible

  • stylish

  • durable

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.
