  •    There are women all across the country and even the world who has experienced sexual harassment, being followed or made uncomfortable my creepy men. Our device is a solution to the ubiquitous problem of sexual harassment women face all over the world. 
    ImPENetrable emergency bluetooth “pen” that allows you to create fake text messages/calls to one’s phone and notify the police. This device was created to it’s users feel safer in a situation where they there might be someone following them. There is also a built in pepper spray bottle. The beauty in this device is that it is disguised in an everyday object, a pen. This allows us to appeal to a bigger audience because women are not the only one who face this problem. 

         ImPENetrable will be connected to your mobile device. With one click of the pen, you are able to send a fake text message to your phone. The message will be pre-set too. This messages will come in many different forms and from different contacts as well. For example, a text can come from “Dad,” saying “I’ll be there in a minute” or the text can come from “boyfriend.” With two clicks of the pen, you’ll be able to send an instant incoming call to your phone that will act as a distraction to a person following you. Lastly, three clicks will call the police if the situation is completely out of hand. We hope that this device will help the users feel a lot safer.
