Wilmington, DE – On November 11 2015, Antarit launched a Kickstarter campaign for Buzzarm, a smart warning device with an active anti-theft system that prevents pickpocketing. Buzzarm is only 3.5mm thick, making it a perfect minimalist way for travelers to get peace of mind.
“I did not want it to be another trinket you hang on your keys that feels massive in your pocket and brings discomfort rather than value,” Vitaliy Pochtar, founder and CEO of Buzzarm, explains, “No, in my head it looked like credit card so that you could put in in your wallet and forget it exists. Sounds pretty simple but when it comes to tech – the simplest ideas require the most thorough effort.”
Buzzarm looks like a credit card and protects your wallet from pickpockets. Just place it in your wallet and relax knowing that your valuables are safe. How it works is simple: if somebody tries to take your wallet, Buzzarm triggers an alarm on your smartphone and on the device itself. If you want to use your wallet, you can easily disable anti-theft mode using their app on your smartphone or smart watch.
In the near future, the team hopes to collect data on theft attempts and share it with police to enhance patrolling of particular neighborhoods and make thieves feel threatened. Currently, they are raising funds from the Kickstarter community to help bring Buzzarm to life along with the Android and iOS applications. For this campaign, Buzzarm will be available in four colors: blue, brown, black and white.
“We are very passionate about what we do. Especially when we understand that our work can help people avoid experience of pickpocketing,” says Pochtar, “Kickstarter for us is a good chance to launch manufacturing and take this project to the next level. We have already met with suppliers and manufacturers and we need your support to start it up and make the world a safer place.”
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including one early bird Buzzarm device for $29 (or the regular Kickstarter price of $39), two Buzzarm devices for as little as $49, and more. Backers can also pledge $129 for a Family Pack with four Buzzarm devices, “BUΖΖARMED” stickers and an information booklet.
