ICER-2-Go Emergency Drive

It used to be that a bracelet or a card in your wallet was the only real way to let paramedics know about important medical problems, like asthma or diabetes. But what if your history was more complex, or you needed more information than what a few words on metal or plastic could say? Enter the ICER-2-GO ("In Case of Emergency" Record). It's a simple USB flash drive at heart; what makes it special is the software that accompanies it. You can setup an ICER-2-GO to contain a set of crucial emergency info which is immediately accessible when the drive is plugged in: allergies, blood type, contacts, and medicine histories will be there for anyone with a USB port. It's also a handy drive for equally important but more sensitive data, like business or financial records: the same software can put 256-bit encryption and password protection on anything you'd rather not give out to a stranger. An ICER-2-GO is yours for $150 for both the hardware and software; it's for Windows users only, but it could prevent a potentially serious complication in the emergency room.
