Student idea to keep people safe from crime with a simple click of a button with ICE.

Students at the School of Communication Arts in Brixton have created ICE, which stands for 'Incase of Emergency'. It is a personal security programme for mobiles.

The ICE disk is small enough to hide in the palm of your hand as a simple accessory, which you can hook onto your bag or keychain.

If in danger, you simply press the button on the device which then links to the Bluetooth on your phone. It alerts the emergency service, your personal emergency contacts and ICE members nearby so they know your location.
