The Ripple Monitoring Team will stay by your side when you're feeling uncomfortable
The Ripple Monitoring Team will stay by your side when you're feeling uncomfortable
We've all either called someone, or have been on the receiving end of a call from from someone who asks, "Will you stay on the phone with me? I'm walking to my car and I'm nervous." Ripple has been designed to solve these worrisome situations.
  • Walking home at night and don't feel safe?
  • Walking back to your dorm after pulling an all-nighter at the library?
  • Walking to your car at the end of a poorly-lit parking lot?
  • Need a "convenient interruption" to disrupt an awkward encounter?

Click Ripple once and you immediately receive a call to your cellphone from the Ripple Monitoring Team. We stay on the phone with you until you've safely made it to where you're going. We want you to know we're here to provide you the comfort of knowing someone always has your back!

Ripple for Emergencies: Click 3 Times


Click Ripple three or more times when you have an emergency. The Ripple Monitoring Team immediately relays all critical information to local Police and dispatches them directly to your location. Ripple is the fastest way to communicate for help when you don't have time to!

Why We Need You!

Today, we're asking you for help to get Ripple into the hands of everyone who's ever experienced an uncomfortable situation and felt they had nowhere to turn.  

The more pledges we receive, the more economies of scale kick in -- and we can acquire all the subcomponents we need to make each Ripple less expensively.  

Honestly, we dream of a world where everyone has access to Ripple. Where everyone has the support they need, whether it's simply a voice on the phone during an uncomfortable walk home, or critical emergency services dispatched with life-saving information.   

We're not there yet. With your help, we'll get one big step closer today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

Risks and challenges

We've spent most of the last year working with our partners to mitigate as many risks as possible, yet we know there will still be hurdles along the way. We will always be transparent with our community about challenges, including these:

Ship date: We have built in extra time for the manufacturing process and are confident we will ship by the projected dates, but there is always a chance that things will take longer than planned.

Product changes: As we refine the wearable device based on additional community feedback and more product testing, slight changes may be made. We'll only make changes that enhance the product experience.

Supplier coordination: We work with a variety of suppliers to source the best materials and ensure the device is developed correctly. Each supplier has its own challenges, which may affect its partners, including us.
