Purpose Safety is an outdoor-minded engineering company. They have created a unique product to improve hunting safety for outdoor enthusiasts. This product is an embedded computer system programmed to detect the brightly-colored vests worn during hunting season. When a vest is detected, the rifle is prevented from firing using a servo motor and pin to disable the trigger. This is a unique product because there are no similar accessories available that work passively using only the safety equipment already worn in the field. Check out their social media below!
