Umbrella Badge / Child sexual assault alarm

Umbrella Badge

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

This is an alarm device designed to prevent child sexual abuse. Research shows that many abusers verbally abuse their victims before committing a crime. If a child is being harassed, the badge can detect sensitive words and send an alert to draw attention to passers-by, as well as to alert the child to possible danger. When the alarm is triggered, the badge automatically sends the child's location to the designated contact.

It's a very fresh design – a badge that detects words with a focus on verbal abuse. Especially today, with the advancement of AI, the technology of this badge will be further improved. It's also a great idea to locate the device in a badge that is easy for kids to wear. I think it is a very good device that can help to keep children safe from assault and exploitation.
