Findable Objects

My favorite artifact from the future is the Wherify Wireless GPS Personal Locator for Kids, shown in Figure 4-9. It’s a watch, clock, pager, and tracking device all in one. You can buy it on Amazon. It’s available in Galactic Blue and Cosmic Purple. With a special key fob, you lock it on your kid’s wrist. And then, from the comfort of your home or office, you track your child’s location via the Internet, as shown in Figure 4-10. Features include:

  • Choose from a standard street map or custom aerial photo.

  • Define preset times for automatic “locates.”

  • Use “breadcrumbs” to see travel routes and location history.

  • Unlock the locator remotely once your child arrives safely at soccer practice.
