Really cool idea: A smartphone app that lets you create your own first-responder network in your own neighborhood. You can add anyone you trust as an emergency contact and have instant, real-time communication with them in the event of a home invasion, fire, or medical emergency (as long as you have a cell phone signal). These people can likely respond much faster than any police force. Like they say: “When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.”

You can contribute to the Indiegogo campaign if you want to help get the app to market.
