stuff we love: how to turn a smart phone into a travel adventure lifesaver

SATcase_Bright_Yellow For many of us there’s nothing better than the adrenaline rush of an outdoor travel adventure. Yet, along with every travel adventure, comes that inherent risk that something might go terribly wrong. Even the best laid plans can go awry, and when they do, having a satellite phone may mean the difference between life and death.

To this end, the makers of SATcase™ have designed a revolutionary device capable of transforming a common Android smartphone into a lifesaving satellite phone. The transformation is seamless: place your smartphone inside the durable, rugged case and simply install the SATcase™ application. The resulting device runs on a familiar operating system that is now loaded with cutting-edge technology able to assist anyone in extreme emergency conditions.

Targeted towards travel adventure seekers, hikers and outdoor adventurers this innovative personal rescue/health and safety device promises to be one of the most exciting developments in 2013. Based in the UK’s South-West of England, SATcase™ has been created with knowledge gained from working in the IT and Telecoms Industries for over 25 years, as well as first hand experience working with Satellite Communications for Search and Rescue operations in challenging environments.

Company founder, Jim Thomson, told me, “We are extremely proud to introduce SATcase™ to the market. This is a vital piece of advanced technology that will help save the lives of people all over the world. The practical applications of our system are also impressive. Users can maintain cellular communications no matter where they are on earth, and unlike traditional satellite phones, there’s no need to carry multiple units because our device serves multiple purposes. Additionally, it’s compact enough to fit into a coat pocket or purse.”
