Fall-Off Rescue

Fall-off RescueKrister and his classmates Alfred Kvendset, Even Grøntoft, Isak Brattgjerd, Lukas Hegge, Ruben Chiorean and Erik Nødtvedt Gilje, have been participating in a project where they built a company from scratch. Their idea: developing a device that registers when a motorcycle (or something similar) comes to a sudden halt due to an accident. Their device will then send the GPS location and a message to the rescue services.

Today he and a collegue, both from our local little town, were featured prominently in the local newspaper, which is nice; the facts that the newspaper shared were all correct, including the spelling of his names. Miraculous :)
