In this project I will be showing you how to build a GPS/SMS/Call thingy. I got the idea from an Instagram product that can send an emergency SMS with GPS location to a phone. But the only problem was that the instagram product requires a smartphone to do this which I think is not ideal. So I came up with a box that can do all this work on its own without requiring a smartphone. And as a bonus; my box can also call you to get you out of awkward conversations 😉 Let’s get started!
