The TrakDot: another simple idea that could change the way we live and travel. Luckily, I've never lost my luggage on a flight but we all know someone who has. There's no worse feeling that showing up at home for the first time in a year empty handed. Away on a business trip? Even worse, because now you've misplaced your binder with all those important presentation details. It was on your USB? Well, you've lost that too. Nonetheless, TrakDot is simply a box of clever that you throw in your luggage to be able to track it all the way to your destination. So next time Delta tap their keyboards and tell you they're doing everything they can, you can justify your yelling by pointing out that your luggage is actually in Guadalajara and not Boston.
"Trakdot™ Luggage is constantly monitoring the cellular network to determine it's city location. When you fly, Trakdot™ Luggage knows and goes to sleep. Upon arriving at your destination, Trakdot™ Luggage wakes up and reports it's new location. Depending on your preferences, a text-message or email is sent to you confirming that your luggage has arrived with you."
TrakDot comes out in March 2013 for $49.95 plus activation and service fees.
