Start Clicking Your Way Home

Tipster: Chantel

Product/App: Dorothy App

Imagine clicking your heels to summon an Uber, call your phone or text a friend. The Dorothy app will let you do all that and more.

Have you ever been stuck on a bad date, praying for your phone to ring so you can gracefully exit? We’ve all been there. You would have no issues getting out of that situation with the Dorothy app. All you have to do is set the app to call you, then put the “Ruby” (a small connected device) into your shoe. The device will trigger a call to your phone from a fake contact (your “boss”) whenever you tap your heels together 3 times. That’s not all, “Dorothy can also send text messages to your contacts with a custom message and your current location, letting them know exactly where you are.”

The geniuses over at iStrategyLabs are still perfecting the technology, so it’s only a prototype, but it’s still pretty cool to think about clicking your heels to go home. Let me try it, “there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home,” ‘click, click,click,’ nope still here.
