article imageArmStar demos their futuristic wearable tech in Pasadena Special

By Matt Terndrup     Jul 22, 2014 in Technology
Pasadena - This company is dedicated to providing the future of self-defense in the form of a wearable, hands-free, less than lethal modular system.
Inspired by the events of a 2004 mountain lion attack in Orange County California, inventor David Brown developed this wearable device to protect people from being attacked. It is fully equipped with an LED flashlight, a green laser pointer, an HD video camera, and even a stun gun that is activated by a pressure pad trigger in the palm of the glove. All of this helps to fend off wild beasts that might lunge at a scared bypasser, or perhaps to fight away an oncoming mugger.
We spotted this technology at the Wearable Tech LA conference on July 17, 2014, and approached David Brown for an interview, to which he promptly and gladly agreed to.

When asked what other potential types of armor-based technology might appear in the future, he stated that “obviously when this takes off, the next step is to go after a bullet-proof vest company, and say ‘hey! We want to swallow you whole, because we want to make a bullet-proof vest smarter.’” He said that the forearm unit will be the main control panel that will be able to interface with other armor wearable units. He goes on further to talk about how ArmStar could become a smart body armor company later in time.
For the most part, it looks like ArmStar will be pursuing government and police-oriented contracts, but David did mention to us that there might be a civilian model in the future. Which is good news to people who are scared of dark areas. When they put this device on, they become essentially a warrior of self-defense capable of protecting themselves in the most violent and disturbing areas.
