Secufone: The GPS security phone for grandparents


If only that 90's-era lovable old lady of "I've fallen and I can't get up," fame lived in the cellphone age. Then instead of that crappy Lifeline necklace, she could use Precisa's new Secufone which has a GPS/GSM, personal alarm system, and cellphone service. Pushing the bright red alarm button connects the user with a call-center (admittedly not unlike the Lifeline), and then the GPS enables the call-center to precisely locate the in-trouble user. The device also has big ol' easy-to-use buttons for universal design appeal and will be available in the US and Europe by the end of August.
