A Wearable Personal Security Device.
The Lotus device is a fashion-forward, gender-neutral wearable device that tethers to the app via Bluetooth, allowing for remote control of the app’s features. Without fumbling for your phone, you can easily and quickly use the Lotus to activate tracking and sharing of your GPS location, photo, and audio data. It also allows you to make hands-free phone calls in emergency situations to your nearest guardians, or local emergency services on Android OS only.
Provided with an initial industrial design, we transformed this idea into a reality by designing the hardware, firmware, and mechanical features of this device. The challenge of this project was to fit all desired functionality into a small coin-like shape. NeuronicWorks team creatively integrated all the requirements, including a bidirectional audio communication channel and long lasting battery. While small and with only two buttons the Lotus unit is an example of elaborate user interactions using only RGB LEDs for feedback.
