THE NuM8 - GPS LOCATOR WATCH KIDS KEEP THE TIME WHILE YOU LOCATE THE KIDS
2009, and it seems like "Big Brother" devices or technologies are rapidly expanding. Well one thing that has always been around since the beginning of time is knowing where the children are located. I mean come on, even Adam and Eve was wondering where Kain and Abel were at, and as you turn into a parent those involuntary thoughts consume you everyday. Amber alerts always seem to increase by the year, with the alarming rate of disappearances or kidnappings we need to step up measures or increase tools for prevention of threat to our children. Well the people at lok8u (locate you) has made a GPS tracker designed for children. The NuM8 is a watch which doubles as a GPS tracker. The NuM8 allows the child to not know they are being monitored and enjoy having fun. The technology of the watch allows you either locate your child by either texting the locator base or via website. Also you can preset boundaries with alerts, so if you child moves past your designated circumference you are alerted asap. The watch also includes a feature that if the watch is removed or forced off you can be notified urgently! The cost of the watch is $218. There is also a monthly subscription rate for the services which can start at $10 and go to $28. The launch of this product will take place in the UK following a release in US in the Spring.
The NuM8 will be showcased at The CES Expo this weekend in Vegas.
Pretty soon I guess it will be GPS equipped sneakers or jewelry for children, hey whatever can help us keep our most valued asset safe, "children" I support it 100%!
