The kid detailed the characteristics of his invention: a bulletproof steel plate “that could protect you in case a shootout occurs”, an easy access sonic alarm that you can turn on in the event of robbery or kidnapping, a lamp and a charger.

Apart from protecting its bearer, this backpack can put parents at ease in regards of their child’s whereabouts because it has a GPS linked to their cellphones. “In case they might go missing,” he said.

Part of the inspiration for the security backpack came to Juan David through the safety courses imparted at his school, which prepare the youngsters for probable dangerous situations like shootouts.
