A team of students at RIT has come up with a new way to send out mass notifications on campus in the event of an emergency.
Their digital clock can receive digital alerts to display on the screen when emergency coordinators have to reach students, staff, and campus visitors in a hurry.
Tyler Krupicka is one of the computer engineering students who developed the prototype. He says the device, called Clockwyse, can be made using consumer tablets and PCs. Mounted on the wall in a classroom or common area, it simply displays the time, until there's an emergency.
