CTO of Gopher Protocol Shares Results of Recent Real-Time Tracking Test of the Guardian Patch Location Technology in San Diego

Company's Unique Tracking Technology Positions for Global Pet Wearable Market

SAN DIEGO, CA and POINT ROBERTS WA--(Marketwired - September 28, 2016) - Investorideas.com, a global news source covering tech stocks, interviews Dr. Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH) following the recent successful live demonstration and testing of the Guardian Patch held in San Diego on September 14th, 2016.

The Guardian Patch is a stick-on patch location technology that can track a phone, a pet collar, a child's backpack and anything you want to personally track.

Dr. Rittman shares the recent testing results and also discusses the company's plan to enter the global pet wearable market with the pending release of their Guardian Sphere tracking device.

Interview

Q: Investorideas.com

Danny, congratulations on the recent successful first live test and demonstration of the Guardian Patch. Can you tell us what object(s) you tracked and for how long?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

We tracked a car that I drove, travelling along typical roads and highways. The LIVE DEMO took about 1 hour. During the DEMO I stopped at a few locations to demonstrate the accuracy of the tracking system, in real time, if needed.

Q: Investorideas.com

This first live demo was in a 50 mile radius in San Diego. Can you tell us the challenges you faced in this demo and also what surprised you, if anything, as you went through the testing?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

The main challenge was to keep the real-time aspect. Although the final Patch will transmit its location every certain amount of time (in some applications even just twice a day, each application will determine the time interval), this DEMO focused on real time response. We achieved amazing results by keeping continuous, smooth tracking of my location at all times with intervals of about 10 seconds. One of my associates said: "Danny, you bring satellite from the sky to the ground, so exciting."

Q: Investorideas.com

Now that you have done a successful tracking in a 50 mile radius area, what will the next testing parameters include and can you estimate when and where that will take place?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

The next DEMO will be to cover a greater distance. Then once we complete this, we will probably demonstrate the Guardian Sphere which is a local tracking device, targeted for applications like tracking pets, kids… or any other object that is not supposed to move.

Q: Investorideas.com

The Guardian Patch works with or without GPS, so in your next series of testing will you show how it tracks in areas without GPS capabilities? And on that note, can you briefly explain how that works? How you can locate a person or object where there is no access to GPS?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

The current system already has a partial GeoLocation mechanism. In future DEMOs, we will demonstrate live tracking without GPS by simply blocking the "eye-in-the-sky" access. This will be done by entering a closed location like a tunnel or similar.

Q: Investorideas.com

The Company is looking at all potential applications for the unique tracking technology and just announced the development of the Guardian Sphere tracking device, primarily created for the pet market. Can you tell us what differentiates it from the Patch and how it works?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

The Guardian Sphere is a local tracking device that can be used for pets, objects and even children, team members at tradeshows, hospital patients, or any other object that is not supposed to move (like hospital equipment, and similar). It is targeted to track in a radius of 5-10 miles. With existence of similar Guardian Sphere devices in the area, this range can be easily extended. This tracking device includes similar technology aspects as the Patch and is targeted for local operation.

Q: Investorideas.com

The global pet wearable market is expected to reach USD 2.36 billion by 2022 according to some analysts. Do you see this as one of your biggest market opportunities?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

Given this estimated market share, I think that there is a great opportunity for the Guardian Sphere since it is the leader in its domain. There is no similar device currently in the market that offers such large range with the possibilities of extension.

Q: Investorideas.com

So for consumers and investors following the Company, what is the next phase of development to expect prior to the official consumer launch of your products?

A: Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc.

Due to demand, we are now focused on rapid manufacturing of the Guardian Sphere, targeting Q1 or Q2 of 2017 to be available for sale. As the Sphere itself "keeps evolving" as an independent product, I cannot guarantee the timing, as adding features extends the development. For example, just lately we are thinking of an additional light button for the Sphere. But in essence, the Sphere and introduction to the market ASAP is our first priority. In parallel, we continue to develop the Guardian Patch, targeted for later in 2017.

About Guardian Patch http://www.guardianpatch.com/

The Guardian Patch (the "Patch"), potentially arriving in consumer markets in 2017, is a unique location technology that works with or without GPS. The Patch is a "stick-on" device that provides its users with the capability to protect and track objects, a loved-one or even a pet, through a mobile application. Download the Patch app, register your patch, and track anything that you own on your mobile device or on our designated website. Register the Patches of your family members and friends to receive alerts in the event of an emergency. Peel the Patch off and the Patch acts as a beacon, sending out a signal and notifying anyone who has registered the user's Patch.
