ICEdot Crash Sensor Teardown #WearableWednesday

The ICEdot crash sensor is a Bluetooth low-energy device that senses extreme changes in movement, like when you’re in a bike accident. It connects to an online service via an iPhone app and after a crash is detected it launches a 45-second countdown on the phone which, if not canceled, then notifies your emergency contact. When you first get the device, you can set up your account with multiple contacts and choose between a phone call, sms, or email notifications. Emergency medical personnel can text the ID of your ICEdot to a number and receive back your important medical info. Ladyada and I were curious how it worked, so we took it apart and identified the components on the board. Watch the video on YouTube (please subscribe)! and Vimeo.
