Going out? Check in with your friend so you don’t get murdered!
Most women know the relief of giving your best friend the look at a party as you’re feeling threatening vibes from the guy hitting on you. She swoops in, makes some excuse about why she needs you right now, and suddenly you’re free. Most women also understand how awful it is that this is a common occurrence. Well, now there’s wearable tech to remind you even further how depressing it is to be a woman!
ONEE is a cute set of matching cuffs that lets you and your “buddy” keep track of each other through the night through ONEE’s code. One tap means you’re checking in and you’re OK; two taps means you need help. You can also keep track of each other’s whereabouts through the app.
In a roundtable, the women at the Verge get right into the existential dread of the necessity of such a product. “Gotta love the patriarchy and the sad reality of being a woman!” says Ashley Carman. They also point out that you can only sync two bracelets to each other, so guess it’s time to tell Megan she’s a third wheel.
ONEE is cute, but it’s expensive and 90 percent of what it does can be accomplished through text messages. But what it does do is remind everyone of the horrible precautions lots of women have to take before engaging in parties, alcohol, and men. We can’t wait until a judge tells a woman she was asking for it because she only buzzed her ONEE once.
