You may have heard of a new invention supposedly coming out in the spring. http://www.thetileapp.com/. It's a tiny white square that uses bluetooth technology and a small battery to keep track of whatever it is attached to.
I love it because it is small and works for one year. It costs $20. After one year you send it in to recycle it and buy a new one.
Why can't gps work with a device this small? That's all I want to know. I can't rely on everyone in the world having these tiles and the app installed on their devices if I need to look for my kid. I like the idea but this doesn't work for me.
Right now, it's about as effective as anything else that makes a noise to let you know where your keys are.
I want the thing that is small and discrete and tracks my kids wherever they go. Maybe I just have to invent it myself.
Maybe I just don't understand how big something tracked by gps has to be. I'm going to find out and I'll get back to you.
