Protegé

The first smart-Lingerie that contacts the cops when you can’t.

THE PROBLEM

Many women are subjected to sexual harassments and rape. Since a lot of these cases happen when women are too intoxicated to consent or due to date rape, they are difficult to prevent and prosecute.

THE CONCEPT

We will collaborate with AMANN Group to create a unique piece of AIKYOU Lingerie, that not only looks and feels sexy, but most importantly safeguards the wearer by being directly connected to local quick-response emergency services. This connection is made possible by the Smart Yarn from AMANN, Silver-tech+.

NO RESTRICTIONS,
JUST FREEDOM

Women don’t want to be told what to wear. They want to be free to wear whatever they want, whenever they want. We hope to provide further freedoms to women to do so. Without the risk of being sexually assaulted – no matter how sexy their clothing appears.

How it works

Smart Yarn

Built discreetly into the underwear’s waistband, the conductive yarn from AMANN connects to a Bluetooth Low Energy microcontroller that is sewed into the Lingerie.

Download & Link

The new Lingerie owners can simply download the Protegé app and link their purchases via their Smart Phone’s Bluetooth connection.

Contacting 911

When the Lingerie is ripped and the Smart Yarn is broken, the app immediately contacts the emergency services with the wearer’s exact location.

The technology

Silver-tech+

Sewn into the waistband, the silver-coated polyester hybrid thread is intimately combined with the underwear’s style, design, and femininity. Staying sexy but safe.

Connectivity

The Bluetooth Low Energy microcontroller allows the Lingerie to connect directly to the app 24/7, providing the wearer with the constant feeling of safety and security.

AIKYOU
