Last month I wrote an article about important personal security devices that are important to keep on your person. And although I covered a few items, there are still plenty of other gadgets out there that can should be used for protection. And so, I thought it would be a good idea to list a few more personal security items.
This may seem like an obvious choice for those who value their personal security, but not everybody is aware that these devices exist. Essentially, personal security alarms are tiny devices that can be carried discreetly and, in the case of an emergency, set off in order to alert authorities. Devices like the GE Personal Security Keychain Alarm or the Nimb Ring all offer a sense of safety for anybody.
Admittedly, this might be a bit of overkill, but depending on your situation, you might want to have a camera on you at all times. Especially if you are walking alone in the park or through the streets. By having a portable camera on your person, you can video record your assailant and report him or her to the authorities. With video evidence, they can then track the perpetrator and bring him to justice.
This “gadget” is possibly one of the most unique and ingenious devices I’ve ever seen. Undercover Colors is a brand name of nail polish that can be used to detect predatory drugs. According to Undercover Colors, 1 in 6 women will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime. This special blend of technology and nail polish is looking to combat that. The nail polish can be worn as normal and dipped into a variety of beverages; if the nail polish changes color, that means that the drink has been spiked with a predatory drug. This fantastic device is stylish and secure, and could help prevent thousands of unnecessary acts of violence.
