It Could Be The Last Message
Mark: Just left work. Be home in 10 min. Kally: OK. I’m driving right now. I’ll beat u! Mark: Let’s see who gets there first! Mark: Where are u? Mark: R u there? Mark: Hello? A typical couple driving home from work. A normal text conversation. Now, the last message, as Kally is crushed into the truck in front of her. She takes her last, dying breath. Her cell phone still in hand. Kally commonly uses her phone to navigate and communicate in the car, but ignores the risk that many people have died because they were using their phone improperly while driving. To prevent this type of accident from happening again, Mark contrives an application, FocusDrive, that will lock his phone while driving. When Mark gets any message from his phone, FocusDrive automatically sends a message, “I’m driving, will respond later”. At the same time, it will lock his phone messaging system so that he cannot respond. This way, he will only focus on driving. When the car stops, FocusDrive will unlock messaging. Mark can then answer text messages the safest way: not while driving. Now, Mark and Kally use FocusDrive: Mark: Just left work. Be home in 10 min. Kally: Mark: A typical couple driving home from work. A safe text conversation. Now, Kally drives up to her apartment. She waves to Mark as he arrives. Her cell phone saved her life. Drivers like Kally commonly use their phones to navigate and communicate in the car, but with FocusDrive, they avoid the risk of death because they will use their phones properly while driving. Mark’s application could save Kally, save many others…save you.
