We managed to persuade a man to test the gadget today. Clinton Liederman was brave enough to humour us by agreeing to be a guest on our video. Watch what he says about the Personal Alarm from Ila Dusk.

 

Screaming Gadget…4

This is the fourth video in our Screaming Gadget series. We put one of our friends’ Shameez Liederman on the spot yesterday and asked her if she is brave enough to test this device. Watch the video to see her reaction.

This is the Personal Alarm from Ila Dusk based in the UK. It should be used in case of an emergency. Eg. When you are being attacked or you think someone is following and you are not feeling very safe. The screaming device will alert people around you that something is wrong and that you need some help. We haven’t tested it in a live attack yet. It is quite interesting to see how women react to this device when asked to test it. First the device screams on activation then the woman screams and laughs at the same time because of the high decibel screeching sound the device makes and maybe just pure shock!

More video’s will follow as we ask various individuals to test the device and tell us what they think and if it will help them.
