We hesitate to use such cliched old phrases as “only in America,” but if you can show us another country in the world that requires custom gadgetry to help drivers locate their cars we’d be amazed.
This is the KITTY LOC8TOR. It’s a sort of walkie-talkie thing that, when you activate it, makes a base station in your car make a variety of noises. So you can find it, just in case you’ve forgotten what colour it is or if it’s a Focus or an Astra. It also “has the added feature of being able to record a message that gets amplified as soon as the unit is put into locate mode,” which is a terrifying prospect.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get an worse – KITTY stands for Key Innovation That Talks to You. There’s a web site about it if you have nothing to do until home time and require cheering up by reading about how stupid and beyond saving other people are.
