Auroco Epic…

Now if only we had something to attach this to in the middle of nowhere. Attach it to your climbing partner, perhaps?

I guess people are going to have to keep hunting for the ever elusive WTB Silent Partner.

Think about how reliable wireless internet and/or bluetooth are. Now think about your life depending on that.

Similarly, "internet of things" devices have been hacked quite frequently in recent years, such as the Mirai Botnet. Again, not what you want for your lifesaving gear.

It's possible that Auroco solved the technical problems with having a wireless device that your life depends on, but I'm very, very skeptical.

Looks like they're marketing it to the industrial sector for the most part. Crane work and such:…

Yeah, who knows about the wireless functionality and safety. Definitely a concern in the city.

Speaking of which, it's not really built for anything but gym walls and industrial purposes, being that it needs to be locked into the bracket and bolted down but, it's interesting nonetheless.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
