THE WITNESS ANGEL HANDBAG
Discover the next step on our roadmap to the "Familiar"
The handbag is an interesting intermediary solution for a witness angel, because it offers enough space to host a small box and a battery, while remaining discrete and portable. It allows the device to be attached to a person, and not to a place like our VideoTestimony for Condominiums.
Our goal: a prototype capable of collecting both audio and video recordings of the environment over the course of a full day. In the longer term, we envision an intermittent Bluetooth connection with the wearer's smartphone to retrieve GPS data, digital signatures, or export encrypted containers to remote storage.
This phase marks the first steps of the WitnessAngel project in the world of "embedded" software: we can no longer be satisfied with powerful microcomputers like the Raspberry Pi, we will need to recode some of our software bricks in low-level languages, to make them work on smaller chips, less powerful, less expensive, and especially less energy consuming.
