Invent-Tech Inventors Make Personal Safety Easier


(Coral Gables, FL) Given the tragic recent Virginia Tech University school shootings, nothing is more important than addressing the issue of personal safety in each of our lives. The innocent college student victims in the largest mass-shooting in our country’s history could not have expected the fate that awaited them on Monday, April 16 as they went about their daily lives and studies. However, fate led them to be where they were that heartbreaking morning and that fate cannot be changed, no matter how much their families and the entire nation wish it could be so.

No one knows what fate and the future have in store for them. After September 11, 2001, many Americans and others around the world realized what others already knew based on their own tragic experiences - our safety is never assured. Our lives can change in an instant as a result of the actions of others with malevolent intentions; sadly, those occurrences are beyond our control.

The only control individuals can possibly have over their fate is to be prepared for the dangerous situations that can present themselves in our uncertain world. Several Invent-Tech inventors have created products that, while obviously unable to guarantee one’s safety in a dangerous situation, may just mean the difference between a favorable outcome and disaster.

In late 2003, Herman Z. watched a series of news reports of missing, raped and murdered women, running from coast to coast. In his hometown, Washington, D.C., there was a report of a missing intern, later found dead, in Rock Creek Park. There was another story about a missing mother and daughter who had been hiking in Colorado and were subsequently found dead. These reports bothered Herman tremendously.

Out of his concern, the Georgia resident created the Safalert Personal Security System. A user can carry it in case of a safety threat, to alert people in the immediate area of a problem and guide them directly to the situation to render aid and assistance. The device activates quickly and easily, serving to both pinpoint the location of the attack for bystanders and temporarily disarm the attacker.

The Safalert Personal Security System is designed as a non-intrusive contact weapon but has added features to assist law enforcement to catch perpetrators. The product is discrete but incredibly useful in such situations. No competing safety product encompasses such an array of deterrents to help victims, not assailants, end an attack.

The Weapon Detection Device may sound like something from the movies, however, this high-tech concept is in fact the invention of Tunde E. and Teresa C. of New Jersey. They created the invention to provide law enforcement and citizen protection agencies with quick and easy way to identify threats to public safety.

With a compact and portable design, the Weapon Detection Device enables law enforcement personnel to avoid and respond to incidents with unprecedented speed and efficiency, and would greatly improve the chance of a successful apprehension. In public locations where weapons are restricted and their presence clearly indicates foul intentions, the Weapon Detection Device will be an invaluable aid in the prevention of tragedies.

The Escape Pod, invented by Dave S. of California, is designed as an unprecedented new safety device that could save countless lives in the event of a natural or manmade emergency. When lives are threatened, the availability of this product in commercial and residential locations would provide a unique pathway to safety.

Undeniably valuable in terms of saving lives and the constant, uncertain threat to individuals’ safety around the world, this product would be a way to prepare for the worst-case scenario situation while allowing for the best possible outcome. The Escape Pod’s design is discrete, user-friendly and adaptable for mobile use.
