Nimb is a ring that puts personal security right into your hands. It joins the likes of Cuff smart jewellery to keep you safe at all times and connected in case of emergency.
In the heart of the system there’s a personal wearable device, the ring with a panic button. Press and hold the button — and the message with your GPS location is immediately and silently sent to friends and family, people nearby, police and emergency services or members of our community. You can do it with a touch of a thumb, you don’t even need the other hand to be free.
“Nimb is the only safety device that allows one to alert people who care and authorities of the emergency — with a touch of a thumb. The ring becomes a real life saviour in situations when making a call is not possible. If something or someone holds user’s hands, sending an alert is still feasible: it takes only three seconds and can be done in complete discretion.” said the company in a statement.
“We believe that society is ready to provide its members with peer-to-peer help in extreme situations. We have a lot of faith in official law enforcement institutions and aim to add value and quality to their services by including horizontal initiatives of those, who want and are able to help others. We see Nimb as a movement towards safer environments, where people combine efforts to help someone in trouble, whether they are authorised officials, close ones, sympathetic neighbours or just passerbys.”
Once the emergency alarm is activated, the device automatically starts recording audio. The ring also protects against mobile phone loss, gently vibrating when your phone winds up too far away from you.
“We created Nimb thinking of women and men who concerned with safety issues, kids and teens, people with disabilities and health issues, senior citizens and small retail businesses.”

Nimb has a simple and stylish design and comes in classic black or white, sizes 4-12. The device is water and dust resistant and the internal battery will keep it going for up to two weeks before needing a top-up.
The company behind Nimb is launching a Kickstarter campaign on 21 June to bring the device to market.
