Just about to finish is another very successful kick start campaign for
Little key fobs that work in conjunction with an app that helps you locate everything from lost keys to stolen laptops
Here is the kickstart




That then lead me to thinking about Lost luggage thousands of bags go missing everyday at airports

One company airbus is testing a bag that has wireless in it that you hire and well it all seems to complicated for "joe traveller"

Airbus


Then I thought about Iphones tracking device. Imagine if there was a cheaper version of the phone that still had the tracking ability in it and you just left it on in your bag

Now at the moment that actually breaks several FAA rules
But I can tell you having worked in airports a lot of people leave their phones on in bags that are booked in

SO

Thoughts ideas?

What a great article These especially

Kid Tracker

(take it form someone who has lost a kid for 4 hours!) 

Why isn't every parent forced to buy one of these when they take there kid home form the hospital! Or Make it  a Rotary project to supply them to parents.

However they are all quite expensive compared to the key fob thingys

I guess part of the expense could be things like FAA certification for a transmitting device. Or not.

Kid trackers sound like a great idea to me. Can you get ones you implant under the skin? ;)

I am sure that Gamin sdevice could cost a hell of a lot less if a Chinese manufacture got onto it!

I have always wanted my credit card chip implanted under my skin LOL save a lot of hassle and no one could borrow my card
