Dylan Puccetti, 12-year-old kid, invented an application that changes the smartphone power button into an emergency panic button. Dylan Puccetti’s app comes in the name of Save Me Pro and it is currently available for Android smartphones.
If the power button is pressed 8 times, when the device is locked or if the volume button is held for more than 5 seconds, when the device is in unlocked state, the application will send an emergency text message to the contacts which are stored as an emergency one. Save Me Pro allows its users to store up to three contacts as an emergency contact, to which emergency messages will be sent. This application is available in the Google Play Store for free of cost, and it can be also upgraded to track GPS for 72 hours for only 0.99$.
Dylan Puccetti said,
“If I was getting abducted and I have my phone in my pocket, all I have to do is reach down and press the power button,” and also he added ”I hope it will save somebody’s life.”
He said, he got the idea to develop the Save Me Pro app after his father told him regarding 1997 Jessica Cain disappearance. Dylan Puccetti said that Jessica Cain might need an emergency button and also he explained that Save Me Pro will save others from emergency situations.
After that, Dylan Puccetti said,
“I can press that button and my dad will call me, and I can answer it, and say I have to go real quick. Yeah, it can be an excuse to leave and I can tell my dad, what’s really going on.”
Moreover, it is not a first idea for Dylan Puccetti, he has already designed a device that helps young baseball players in setting up their pitch while he was doing his fifth grade.
