What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Make Personal Securities VIP App part of your life and never walk alone again. A compelling personal safety app that empowers you against acts of violence and helps summon aid in case of an emergency!

The Guardian Service is a one-on-one connection that allows users to send an alert to a chosen contact. The SOS alert will notify that contact of the user’s location and threat alert immediately. The Officer Service is another choice that will alert trained security officers who will be summoned to the user’s location. In some cases when a person needs a friend or family member to act on his or her behalf in the security and financial arenas, or when family members are in conflict with whom should assume responsibility, a guardianship is recommended to monitor the activities.

The app provides three subscription choices so that users can customize their experience to their needs. Whether a child or individual with special needs is lost, feels that they may be in danger, or has already faced an emergency situation such as an injury, the app will help them alert a guardian or security officer within moments.

The first package of VIPs App will allow our users to select a person of their choice to act as their guardian for security purpose. Whenever you feel unsafe or sends out an unsafe alert, VIP app will automatically send your guardian a pre-programmed notification alert with your exact location. It’s quick and discreet. The feature adds so that a friend or a family member can monitor when the user is feeling any danger.

The Third package of VIPs App involves the protection of students. This service is called Campus Safety Network. Students can seek help from our officers who are present inside the given school, college or university. Whenever the user sends out any unsafe alert through our application, our officers will be notified and get back to you as prevention of sexual assault, bullying, school shooting and other kinds of critical dangers.

The Student Service, ideal for college and university students, will connect users with the university’s security staff for the fastest response.

Campus security and safety is an essential feature of education. The Department of Education is committed to supporting schools and colleges in providing students nationwide a safe and secure environment where to learn and to keep students, parents, and employees well informed about campus security. To ensure and enhance the security of students, VIP App Campus Safety Network package designed primarily to cater the students of:

  • UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES
  • High School Campuses

How Very Important Protection VIP App can help stop School Shootings

Globally speaking; the whole world is watching America right now. The recent publicity regarding gun violence in Schools has shocked and stunned nations all over the globe, who look to us and wonder how it is that such a progressive society can't do something so simple as keep our children safe in our schools.

With gun laws being what they are and no indication of change on the horizon, we need to not fail on the global stage. We need to start devising strategies that will make our children safer, even if we cannot guarantee that we won't ever have another school shooting. As a result of this strange niche a new form of technology is arising, all of which is aimed at keeping children and students safe at school.

Some items are innovative and new, some depend upon technology that the army has developed to defend soldiers – some are simple instructions... hide, stay quiet, lock the door, to name but a few. Instruments to hold doors closed in emergency situations have come on the market, utilizing pressure locks that you might find in a submarine... We are going to any lengths possible to protect our children; and with very good reason.

By the 22nd of February 2018 there had already been 17 school shootings since the semester started. 17. Of which one of those was the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting located in Parkland, Florida that saw fourteen students lose their lives – and that's not including teachers. According to Time, school shootings are gaining more and more traction as the years go on. They have a handy info graphic that can show you the number of child deaths at a glance... morbid though that may be, we live in a time when it has become necessary. Gun violence has gotten so bad that CNN have gone to the effort of charting it. You can view their graphics here.


As mentioned above, we might not be able to change gun laws, but we are able to develop new ways to keep our kids safe when they are out of our sight. VIP is one such technology, so let's take a closer look and find out what it does now that we understand why we need it.

VIP stands for Very Individual Protection, and it is a mobile application that has been designed with your children's safety in mind. It uses modern advances in location services combined with an automated alert system that will make it easy to track your child, and even easier for them to send a discreet distress call to you in their moment of need. The alert pings your child's designated guardian of security professional and they will be able to rush to their aid. It might sound like a simple concept, but we are hoping it can half the number of school shootings; or at least limit the fatalities when they do occur.

Very Important Protection aims to operate in much the same way as Uber does – that's not to say that they will provide Taxi's, just that they follow the same business model. Through operating a global network of connected security officers or agents and incorporating any and all clients throughout that network they aim to provide security cover for all users, meaning you will be the first person to know should your child need help.

For the basic package an alert system will be set up, for a more advanced deal the app will connect you to the nearest available security guard or officer who can rush to your child's defense. We also hope to include an alert to the local services too, so that the Police are already on their way by the time you get there. We hope that this application can gain enough traction that it becomes a huge deterrent in all school and College shootings on a global level, and not just in the US.

There are many obvious benefits to this application. Very Important Protection will operate as a sort of private security service that are on call should you ever need them. Try to think of it as an added health insurance you should take out on your child. This way you will severely lessen their chances of being in potentially life threatening situations. It can also allow you to be the first one there to protect them, should the need arise.

Personal security should not be an afterthought, particularly not where our children are concerned. However, until we find a fail safe way that stops gun violence from reaching our playgrounds this is arguably the next best thing. 


At the moment this project is still in the Kickstarter stages. Those who sponsor now will receive free benefits when the application is fully developed and up and running. To pledge simply visit this site and be ready to reap the rewards when Very Important Protection goes live. The release date is currently scheduled for October 2018 but the team are working hard to get it out sooner. When it comes to our children's security; yesterday was not soon enough.

So if you are looking for a project that is going to change the way we protect ourselves in the future and want to be part of a network that has a global reach – then this is the new mobile application for you. By alerting you to your children's needs whenever they are in danger you will have your finger on the pulse of their lives – even if you cannot wrap them in bubble-wrap and keep them safe for ever. The least we can do is to experiment with these new technologies until we find one that works or until the gun laws change. Since the right to bear arms is written into the constitution it seems that the latter might be less possible than the former.
Until then there is Very Important Protection, and the peace of mind it may potentially bring to your home environment.

Risks and challenges

Our risk is that there exit a market for our very individual protection services. Our challenge is getting our services into the hands of those who need protection; especially young women vulnerable to sexual assault.

Our project is designed to help reduce the threat of sexual assault. The risks and challenge of doing so rest with our being able to market our products to a wide enough audience to make a difference. We require no outside agency approval.
