Solar Powered Trackable Clothing



If you’re in a profession where it’s important that people be able to locate you instantly (a paramedic or fireman, for example), or a hobbyist given to visiting remote areas, wearing a GPS dot may be either a desirable option or even mandatory for you. However, it means batteries, and if the batteries wear out, the GPS goes off – until now. Cats Eye has very sensibly rigged up a solar powered battery for the trackable clothing, so you can just put it on and forget about it. Next generation should be fully washable and waterproof, making the system virtually autonomous. [GT]
