Oxford, United Kingdom – 20th June, 2018 – What started off as a safety hack to protect a girlfriend has turned into a full-fledged revolution in the backpack space! Oxford University student Joseph Conlan is soon to launch the world’s FIRST backpack with in-built safety features on Kickstarter that will keep both the user and their belongings safe from attackers. Titled “Piku”, this one-of-kind backpack also amazes with 20 additional stunning features. The Kickstarter campaign is geared to raise around £15,000.
It all started with Joseph getting worried about the dark road that his girlfriend used to take everyday en-route on her way home. A caring boyfriend, he was concerned about her safety and accompanied her to her home but he was worried on the days he could not make it and that is when he came up with a feasible solution that will keep her safe all the time. Over the past year he brainstormed the model of an innovative backpack with personal safety features and after several prototypes Piku was born.
Designed keeping in mind the modern security-conscious students and working professionals, Piku is powered with a line-up of safety features. The main security features in the bag is anti-theft design, Piku alarm and Piku beacon. Piku beacon will inform the users immediately on their smartphone the moment somebody picks up and runs away with the bag. This way, the user can trace the person and recover his bag and belongings safely. If the user is feeling unsafe, he/she will just need to press the beacon and immediately alerts will be sent to the smartphones of their near & dear ones. This way, his/her friends or family can come to their rescue and save them before it’s too late. Piku alarm with its quick access and 130 decibel sound keeps the user safe on the streets notifying others of your need for help.
“Piku is the ultimate combination of functionality, safety, comfort and style. It’s the next big thing in the backpack space and assures a secured, more organized and more convenient world for us. It’s multiple security features will protect your bag from any theft attempts and also you from any attack when you are alone on the street. Moreover, it’s spacious enough to hold clothes and other belongings for a weekend away or business trip – added to your laptop or tablet, phone, charger, files and notebook. All in just one bag and you are safe to go!” smiled Joseph Conlan.
