More blurring of real and virtual worlds.
People who are uncomfortable walking home alone at night can use the app to designate friends and family from their phone’s contact list as “companions”. Those companions monitor that user’s progress as they stumble home from a bar, walk through an unfamiliar neighborhood, or set out on any other potentially unsafe journey. When the person makes it home safely, their companion is notified, allowing everyone to sleep easy. The app also allows users to easily contact the police in case of an emergency, as well as checks in on the user if they determine something is amiss.
