My idea is to design a very cheap cell phone that sends a dignal iin disaster conditions ( like an earthquake )
Currently if the victim is conscious they can phone but if in a coma or trapped ,and cannot use their hands , they cannot ring for help , but if the cellphone was designed to automatically send a signal under changed conditions eg : dropped or change of air pressure , it could be picked up by rescue teams .
Currently rescue teams spend precious time trying to find the exact location of victims , once the victim is located other instruments can detect if the victim is still alive.
THIS DEVICE TO HELP PREVENT FUTURE LOSS OF LIFE .
Many people could be helped by information on how to construct homes so they do not crush individuals inside; for example by construction in concrete paper ..this is a proven material using recycled paper/concrete mix .
It might be more cost effective to give poor individuals a cell phone so they could connect to an educational resource to learn how to help themselves prevent illnesses and methods of generating income , currently vast amounts of aid is given when most poor would prefer aid/ education to improve their lives , in the long term this would be a more effective use of aid donations
See - www.txteagle.com as an example of this cell phone strategy in action ; this for income generation but it can be used for general education purposes .
