Describe a new invention that impressed you a lot
You should say:
- How you knew it
- What the invention was
- How it applied in real life
- And explain why it impressed you a lot
Today I will talk with you about a new invention that extremely astonished me. I read a related article while I was surfing the Internet. It was about a ring called Nimb which was designed to be a quick, subtle way to send your location to anyone from friends to emergency personnel to alert them that you’re in a dangerous situation.
Nimb was cofounded by Kathy Roma, who now serves as the company’s communications director. Roma got the idea for Nimb due to an event in her past: She was violently attacked walking down the street, an experience that left her with several scars on her upper body. Then, she came up with the idea how to invent a regular jewellery but it is secretly a connected device for emergency situations. That is the foundation reason for the existence of Nimb. The ring contains Bluetooth technology and can be paired with both iOS and Android phones that can set up an “alert card” with your basic information, a photo, and a map of your location. You can also receive notifications when someone else is in trouble, pre-set your “safety list” and join other communities of users, and message with those on your list if you’re in trouble.
It is an amazing device. You know, nowadays, in the booming chaotic world with the increasing global terrorism, anyone whose been in an unsafe situation knows the feeling: the creeping sensation of dread and the worry that you won’t be able to get help fast enough, should you need it. Therefore, I think the nascent invention will be an indispensable gadget for every citizen in a future.
