When a cell service is down, it can be super inconvenience or potentially even worse. GoTenna aims to keep smartphones connected without any need for central connectivity.

GoTenna is a small, rugged device that allows a person to use his/her smartphone to send and receive text messages up to 160 characters or share their GPS coordinates with others when there is no wifi signal.

Perdomo and goTenna co-founder Jorge Perdomo came up to deliver the idea of “no service, no problem”.They say goTenna has applications well beyond disasters and emergencies, such as traveling abroad or trying to text friends during musical festivals. It uses literally no cell tower, no Wi-Fi router and no satellites. It’s completely direct communication between smartphones.

GoTenna launched in July with a special 50 percent off pre-order price of $149.99 for two models and will later retail for $299.99 per pair. Two micro-USB cables are included with a purchase to recharge. The device is expected to ship to customers in the U.S. and Canada later this fall.
