Companion is a safety app that lets you reach out to family or friends and have them keep an eye on you as you travel late at night. All you have to do is plug in your destination and select a few Companions from your contact book (they don’t even need the app installed). Your selected Companions can watch you on a live map and keep track of your progress in real time. Once you arrive safely at your destination your Companions are automatically notified -- you don’t even need to take your phone out of your pocket!

If you don’t arrive on time, start heading in the wrong direction, start running abruptly or have your headphones yanked out while they’re in use, we will check in with you to make sure you’re okay. If you don’t respond in 15 seconds we’ll automatically alert your Companions. http://www.companionapp.io/ Meet the Mecanoid Personal Robots. Meccanoid G15 KS (Kid Size) and Meccanoid G15 are your personal robot friends that you get to build using the latest Meccano parts. It is an advanced, yet easy-to-use, Robotics Building platform.
