6 Times Wearable Tech for the Ladies Went Hilariously Wrong
First Sign Hair Clip
Have you ever been walking down the street followed by a strange man and wished your hair accessories could call the police? Well, you're in luck!
There's an Indiegogo campaign going on right now for the First Sign hair clip. I'll attempt to unpack the SCIENCE: Say you're walking down the street with your fashionable hairclip attached just above your scrunchy. An attacker appears out of nowhere and hits you hard enough to take you down. The accelerator and gyroscope detect this is not merely you doing jumping jacks and is an actual impact. The clip issues a verbal warning. If you don't deactivate the alarm within 15 seconds, the hair clip goes CSI with the help of Bluetooth and your smartphone, taking photographs, recording sound and transmitting all of it to the First Sign team of monitors. If the monitors agree it's an attack, they contact your emergency numbers and the authorities.
All of this AND a plastic sunflower. I don't want to be attacked, either, but the sheer logistics of this hairclip make my head hurt.
