Pen for SOS / Product

Pen for SOS

This is a pen for SOS. When you are trapped in a catastrophe, your general location will be sent in the form of GPS signals to rescue personnel by this pen. And your exact location can be inferred either from the laser or the sound of the loudspeaker emitted from this pen. In this way, the rescue effort will be much more efficient.
