Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        A company called Katana Safety aims to turn your phone into a personal safety device.     Katana attaches to the back of your smart phone using 3M adhesive.    Once set up….it offers fast and easy ways to get help in the event of an emergency through a dedicated call center.    Chief Technology Officer Chris Jones…

“We have the ability to track your location, because we are tied in with your phone, using those GPS coordinates,  we can contact not the 911 service for your house, but where you are physically.”

You can also choose to set off a piercing alarm.    The price …99 dollars at www.KatanaSafety.com.    You can have it alert a chosen group of friends and family.   Access to the call center is priced at 15 dollars a month or 144 dollars a year.
