GeoSkeeper Emergency Phone Doesn't Need Fancy Touch Screens

Illustration for article titled GeoSkeeper Emergency Phone Doesnt Need Fancy Touch Screens

Gadgets don't get any more simplerer and usefuler than the GeoSkeeper, a wrist cellphone that only has GSM/GPRS, a speakerphone, GPS, and six buttons, so the "elderly, chronically ill, children or lone workers" can instantly communicate in case of emergency.

That's all it does. The user calls pre-programmed numbers using the buttons, turns on the emergency alarm if necessary, and gets tracked using the GPS, even alerting when the user gets out of a certain area to whoever has the control. Available in[Aerotel via Engadget]

DISCUSSION

I bet my daughter will think I am the greatest father in the world when I say, "Sure, honey, you can have a cell phone - here you go." How many four letter words do you suppose her subsequent sentences back at me will incorporate? Great utilitarian device and as a father I like the concept a lot, but somehow I think it may go over better with the other audience categories.
