Like most kids, the ZOMM team went to camp this summer. Ours just happened to be a little different. It is called Opencamp.
A few weeks ago we told you about Opencamp, and that ZOMM served as the Titanium Sponsor. Equipped with matching “alarmingly SMART” t-shirts and a customized van, the ZOMM team had a great time as they took over Dallas for the weekend.
The event started out strong on Friday night with a skydiving display by the Army Golden Knights. Opencamp organizer, John Pozadzides, participated in the jump, tethered to one of the soldiers. As if skydiving wasn’t exciting enough, John decided to up the ante…
Mid jump, John pulled out his ZOMM (which was pre-programmed to dial Cali Lewis instead of 911) and made a call. When Cali answered the call, those of us on the ground were able to hear John describe what it was like to be parachuting to the ground—it was incredible!
The Army Golden Knights have been parachuting for 50 years, and never once have that made a call during their descent. It’s pretty amazing to know that the first call was made from a ZOMM! (visit our Facebook page to see a video of John’s reaction to the call.)
Throughout Saturday and Sunday, the ZOMM team demoed the ZOMM Wireless Leash to hundreds of Opencamp goers—and generated a ton of buzz around the multi-featured Bluetooth device. Whether it was the wireless leash, call notification and speakerphone or personal safety aspect, everyone found something appealing about ZOMM.
The team is still running off of momentum from the weekend, and can’t wait for our next opportunity to be part of such an exciting event.
