About

The P.O.M.B or ‘Peace Of Mind Bracelet’ is a security bracelet for minors, which looks like a trendy children's bracelet but is so much more. Located on the face of the bracelet is an easy one touch help button which sends a signal directly back to the receiving device in a matter of seconds. There will be an app that the parents or caretakers download once they purchase the P.O.M.B system. The app will use fingerprint scanning  technology to allow them to select who they wish to be able to lock and arm, or unlock and remove the bracelet. A series of light signals on the bracelet will reassure them what the status of the bracelet is. Once the scanning device is activated, any heat sensitive touch lasting more than 3 seconds will trigger a signal to the receiving device. The caretaker will receive a message onto their smart phone and/or computer notifying that the child is in danger or in need of help. The P.O.M.B will be manufactured using recycled rubber material from tires and has been designed by both professional 3-D model designers and a Purdue computer scientist. The bracelet itself is stylish, easily chargeable by USB, and there is a steel cable which runs through the frame making it harder for any potential offenders to remove. 

Our overall goal with Kickstarter is to manufacture this awesome gadget into a reality by creating our first prototype using the blueprint and designs we have acquired from a phenomenal computer scientist from Purdue University. Given his estimate on the P.O.M.B's cost of manufacturing, we know that we can create this prototype and the app to accompany it with the requested $10,000, while leaving plenty of room for error, and still have money to back our promises of rewards to all of our amazing Kickstarter donators. The main idea is to keep P.O.M.B eco friendly, and especially kid friendly, while becoming a business that is owned by the people who truly care about the future of our children, not by a huge corporation that thinks with money rather than what's good for the people or how kids will respond to the style or functionality of their gadget. With the P.O.M.B we will be harnessing todays technology in a bracelet that works to keep our children safe, in a way that is a very first of its kind.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges we are planning for: Any kind of necessary changes to the design of the bracelet. While we have a full blue print for the manufacturing, we understand that like any first product design there are always obstacles to overcome. We know for a fact, given our blue print $10,000 will cover the first complete manufacturing with room for error. We are looking for ultimate child safety and smart phone compatibility. We plan to overcome our obstacles by working with a great team of engineers and manufacturers, whom we already have relations with, and focusing on the completion of one fully functional P.O.M.B bracelet system. This will give us the prototype we need to turn the P.O.M.B into a reality.
