Tech that lets you connect with kids…

We have all seen the nature shows where the baby deer wanders too far from its mom and gets pounced on by some hidden predator. Well aside from opposable thumbs, moms have a new way to differentiate themselves from our mammalian brethren. The “Link” Child Locator is a device that takes a page from the movie Alien, in that it allows for the tracking of your spawn as they hide in the clothing racks at your local Gap store. The product has 2 components, a bracelet worn by the child that contains a transmitter module that works at a range of up to 100′, and a watch-style bracelet worn by the parent that receives the child’s signal and indicates its direction and distance on a small LCD display. Hide-and-seek will never be the same.

  • Proximity devices have been around since the 90s. There was talk of even chipping kids. There is no substitute for good parenting. Why have children if you do not have the time to enjoy them.?
    I wish the inventor all the lick but this is just a twist on an old idea. This is the problem now a days. People want to monitor and evaluate everything they do like FitBit and other useless devices. I can not get my kids to put down their electronic devices long enough to experience the REAL world. It is a shame that everyone has to micro manage every aspect of life instead of just living it.
    On a personal note. I turned 55 yesterday Feb. 12 and time has flown by so fast that I am happy I spent very little online or with other gadgets. I went out and lived. Try it. You may like it…

  • An extra precaution is always valuable. Glad they came up with proximity devices in 1990.
