Smartphones today are incredibly powerful and personal pieces of technology, bringing the world to your fingertips; why let your usage depend on your surroundings? That's why we're introducing the iCap, a phone case that not only protects your phone from damage, but also protects your screen from the environment. The case features a built-in pop-up protecter that brings shade to you wherever you are.

Our downloadable app, SocialPedia, will make the process of connecting over social media smooth and efficient. SocialPedia will sync with the User’s contacts. When a User searches for a contact in SocialPedia, SocialPedia will generate a list of all the social media sites linked to that contact’s phone number. The User will then be able to select any of the social media sites listed, and connect with that contact then and there.

A new product for rape and sexual assault prevention has finally been invented, called S.S.O.S, meaning Silent S.O.S. We have designed S.S.O.S to provide people who feel as if they are in potentially dangerous situations, with the ability to send out distress signals discretely and effectively. S.S.O.S is essentially a discrete micro bluetooth transmitter inside jewelry that transmits data to your smartphone or satellite GPS device. Once the device is on, one must press the button once every X amount of minutes in order to keep a distress signal from being sent.

Book Buddies
posted by Nicholas Turenchalk

Book Buddies is a social networking app that will allow students to buy, sell, and exchange textbooks as well as help coordinate studying efforts. On this app students at various colleges would be able to find buyers for their textbooks at a reasonable price, and from the buyer's standpoint, they can get a book at a significantly lower price. The other half of the app would be devoted to helping students find people to study with. Each student would have an account were they would enter what class they're in and what teacher they have and they could find groups of people to study with.
