One woman is beaten by her husband or partner every 15 seconds in the United States (*).  Every two minutes, somewhere in America, someone is sexually assaulted (**).  Every day, 160,000 students skip school because they are afraid they will be bullied (***).  These facts bring me to tears when I read them.  How can we protect them or ourselves with these statistics?  Let me introduce you to the ICE Black Box App!

HOW THE APP WORKS

The ICE Black Box App is a new way for you to defend against attacks from bullies, strangers, rapists and other violent offenders.  It provides anyone the ability to remove the element of anonymity from the attacker.  Once launched, the app streams video, audio and GPS information to a secure vault.  This evidence is available to the victim and the victim’s ICE contacts (a personal list of In Case of Emergency contacts).  It cannot be deleted.  This protects the victim from being forced to delete the recording.

If the victim feels the attack is imminent, he or she can launch the app, point it at the attacker(s), and tell them “I Have You on ICE.”  At that point, the attacker(s) have a decision to make.   Either continue the attack with the knowledge that their face and voice are now on a secure server to be used in a court of law or turn around and walk away.

If the attacker decides to continue the attack, the victim can click on the 911 icon and the app will dial 911 and at the same time send a message to your ICE contacts with a link to your video and your exact GPS location.

If this movement spans the globe, it may change the way attackers think about hurting innocent people.  This is possible, but we as a human community must come together and make a commitment to use this tool to stop abuse.

You can purchase the app for $4.99 through iTunes.  It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.  The app requires iOS 4.3 or later.  This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
