Buzzbag was developed by keeping in consideration all the drawbacks of various self-defense devices available in the market today.
There are various personal safety devices available to the public such as pepper spray, air siren, stun guns etc. When the critical moment arises, these devices are not readily available for use, as they are usually stored inside a handbag or briefcase. Another problem with conventional self-defense devices is that people often forget to carry the device whilst travelling.
