re:publica 2017

Short thesis: 

Digitally speaking tackles the issue of security for women in India and across the globe. We have designed a product that is equipped with technologies like camera, SOS and GPS signals, which does video recording, and sends out the exact location of anyone under distress. Our work addresses the current social challenges with the fusion of technology and fashion. It is not just a fashion statement but with the integration of technology it is used as a mode of communication and virtual connectivity, or virtual companion with optimum usage.

Description: 

Security is a major issue for women in India and across the globe.According to the statistics 92 women on an average are raped in India everyday and around 60% of the women get raped worldwide (where most of the cases goes unreported).

To address this issue, we have designed a product (prototype) that is equipped with technologies like camera, SOS and GPS signals, which does video recording, and sends out the exact location of anyone under distress. Our work addresses the current social challenges with the fusion of technology and fashion. It is not just a fashion statement but with the integration of technology it is used as a mode of communication and virtual connectivity, or virtual companion with optimum usage.
