USES SOLAR, BACKGROUND ENERGY AND PEER-TO-PEER TO CREATE INSTANT, FREE, EMERGENCY NETWORKS
Oa kland, CA — Aug 16, 2013 / (http://www.myprgenie.com) — EmergaPhone(TM) today announced that it had launched an outreach campaign seeking key deployment partners for its mobile devices which require no outside power and no networks to operate.
The Mark 1 device is the first of a series of emergency mobile communications devices. Each device resembles a car key fob. The devices can be air dropped by the thousands into disaster zones, overnighted in dense pack cases or delivered by the tens of thousands via ground transport. Users open the zip lock bag, pass them around, pull the plastic tab and they begin to operate and connect to each other and self-power. Pictographic instructions easily provide user information without the need for any written information, thus avoiding language barriers.
The units are able to capture ambient background energy, solar and wind energy, kinetic energy via shaking and also use common battery connects. The units connect via peer-to-peer mesh networking.
The company does not currently sell directly to the public.
The company is seeking corporate, NGO and agency deployment partners capable of contracting large volume fab runs for the devices.
Issued and pending patents and trade secrets protect the technology.
EmergaPhone (TM) (http://www.emergaphone.com) is an early stage start-up focused on emergency communications and back-up access devices. Software and systems have been tested and deployed in various regions for a number of years. NDA execution is required for technology discussions.
