Emergency SOS application

Suddenly sickness can happen to anyone, but unfortunately, there are many cases where quick life-saving treatment can not be done, and even if an ambulance comes, about 90% have died. What if someone who has knowledge of life-saving will stay until the ambulance comes? What if someone will lend an AED? They will surely be able to save more people's lives.

Coaido 119 is an emergency information sharing application that can send SOS to the surroundings while reporting to the ambulance in case of emergency. You can notify the ambulance from the application, and can request the life-saving volunteer for about 10 minutes until the arrival of the ambulance to the pre-registered medical qualified people, the life-saving lecturers and the AED holders.

Also, you can communicate information on emergency situations to them using location information, video, and voice chat from this application. And although it is still within 1 km from Ikebukuro station, this application has its own AED area call function.
They are conducting demonstration experiments of applications in Toshima Ward, Tokyo from January 2017 to January 2018, and recently expanded available areas to all over Japan. Now the application is only iOS version and downloading is free.


Earphone to listen to music with bones

Usually, we use eardrums when listening to music with earphones, but startup BoCo is developing a new generation earphone series "earsopen" that utilizes bone conduction technology. Last year it succeeded in raising about 100 million yen of development funding by the croudfunding project, and we can buy this at boco's retail stores, Yodobashi cameras, and online stores.

Earsopen is a bone conduction earphone that does not block my ears by listening to the sounds through the bones. By adopting proprietary bone conduction devices, they realized a high resolution class small bone conduction earphone. The good points of this can to listen to the surrounding environmental sound while listening to music. Furthermore, without damaging the eardrum, and those who have impaired hearing due to damage to the eardrum membrane can also hear sounds by bone conduction.
There are various packages, but the most reasonable set is 10,584 yen (including tax). Color variations are black and white.


IoT measure that can make images with size

Now, it is common to trade fashion items among users on online auctions or online flea markets. When checking the items, it is very easy to understand that there are images clearly showing the size of the items. But making them is a little troublesome, because we need to measure the sizes of items and add them to photos with image editing application.

IoT measure hakaruno("hakaru" means to "measure" in Japanese) simplifies its effort. First, take a photo of the item from the application linked with this, and trace the place you want to measure.

When you measure the size with hakaruno and press that button, the numbers are reflected in photo immediately. Clothing suppliers can also use this. If you measure the size of customers and reflect it in slips, you will not mistake.

The measurement part of this is made by Fujitsu Component, and sending accurate sizes to your smartphone using Bluetooth. The size of this is compact, only 52 x 40 x 15 mm, and weighs about 20 grams. It work with one of coin type lithium battery(CR 2450). Now, this is raising funds for development at the croudfunding platform Makuake, and you can support it from 16,800 yen.
