Nimb

This ring hides a panic button that sends an alert to friends and emergency services if the wearer is in trouble. The button is concealed in the underside of the ring – which otherwise resembles a normal piece of jewellery. When held down for three seconds, it calls for help from contacts and people within 300 yards, who receive a message with the wearer's location and personal details through the Nimb app.

Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means "a reason for being." It is similar to the French phrase Raison d'être. Everyone, according to Japanese culture, has an ikigai.
