Sexual assault is an abhorrent act that needs to go away for good. Unfortunately, many in our communities still experience it. There are tools people can use to deter sexual assault though. The Whistl case happens to be one of those. It pairs with its smartphone app to help the user get help when attacked. The device has a a 120db alarm and a 90-Lumen LED to help you handle attackers. The companion app sends a help signal to the police and folks all around you, so you can get help as fast as possible.
The Whistl case has buttons that are touch-sensing, so you don’t have to worry about the device going off in your backpack. You do have the option to disable police and friend notification using the app. The Whistl has 3 modes. In Check-in mode, you get to contact your friends and family members. In Panic Mode, all options will be available to you. In Stealth Mode, you will be able to contact the police without using the LED/Alarm features. Like what you see? You can get yours on Kickstarter.
