Users can activate the device – called “My Hero” – by simply opening the case by removing its cap. Once activated, it emits a 90-db high-pitched alarm, automatically texts Korean police (using the emergency number 112), and begins recording audio for the next three minutes.

The device can also be configured to send texts and GPS location information to up to five friends or family members. At 8 cm (3.15 inches) long and 0.8 cm (0.32 inches) in diameter, the device is small enough to carry in a bag or pocket, or even worn around the neck.

The device is priced at 25,000 won ($22) and available from SK Telecom’s brick-and-mortar and online stores. Users register the device using the company’s SKT Smart Home app.
