I don’t have any children, nor do I plan on having any in the near future. It’s not that I don’t like kids, it’s just that they poo. That, and I’m not sure I’m quite responsible enough to be trusted with a child. One quick trip to the park and I’d lose them. Well, maybe I’m not that bad, but I do have a bad habit of misplacing things. For those parents that have a problem with wandering children, there’s an easy way to keep track of them.
GPS systems are great for finding out exactly where you are. Fortunately, some companies are utilizing the technology to make it easier to find where other people are. This cool children’s jacket from Bladerunner can not only keep track of your child, but it can alert you when they’ve gone outside of their designated boundaries.
The jacket is available for purchase at a price of $500, plus a monthly fee of $20 for service. I’m sure this will be a great tool for parents, I just never thought I’d see the day when you’d have to pay a monthly service fee on a coat.
