Share |'Earthquake, Tsunami and nuclear crisis' ....what a combination...!! Japan is experiencing the most horrific, darkest nightmare ever possible. In such disasters, rescuing people is a very challenging task, when they don't know where exactly the person is trapped under that enormous rubble.
So with an intention of helping people under such situation, researchers from Tiwan have released a new mobile app called Mobile Savior.
The app can transmit the location of users trapped under the rubble, to any number of people with one single touch...! The app sends out the latitude and longitude co-ordinates of the people stranded in the disaster areas.
The mind behind the app, Liang Chih-hsiung, assistant professor of multimedia and gaming development at Lunghwa University of Science and Technology says that "This project was my idea, because Taiwan has experienced earthquakes and mudslides where we can't find people, With one touch, location data can get out, and maybe that would save your life. If you were crushed but still alive, someone can still find you."
The new app is available for download for $2.99 in English, Chinese or Japanese.
