Inspiration

Sexual harassment remains as one of the most serious problems in the United States today, and it happens everywhere, from classrooms, college campuses to neighborhoods and workplaces.

What it does

You press a button on your Pebble, briefly describe your situation in two or three words, and the server will make 5 outgoing calls with details of your location to 5 different people you have chosen previously.

How I built it

I developed an application on Pebble that accepts button and voice input, then send a request to my server running on AWS. The server will then utilize Twilio API to call 5 people with auto-generated voice including your current situation, urgency and location.

Challenges I ran into

It's my first time I have worked with Pebble so things are going a little rough. But in the end, I managed to set up a simple user interface.

What I learned

Pebble

What's next for PebSafe

I want to scale my apps for hundreds of users
