Tracking kids could be Christmas sensation
Pundits are expecting that the US Christmas sensation will be a watch which allows parents to track their kids.
Dubbed the FiLIP, it is designed by a bloke whose son, Philip, went missing. The kid was later found at a mall without his parents’ permission and his dad wished he could have just tracked him.
The logic is that while a child will hate being electronically tagged like a cow and their every move controlled by their over-protective parents; they will be ok with wearing a high-tech fashion watch and phone.
Parents can program up to five numbers into the gadget, which kids can call with the touch of a button. Using the FiLIP app, parents and other preauthorised adults can track the child's location, make calls, send texts and set "SafeZones." Parents get an alert when a child leaves a safe zone.
