A popular school uniform company in the UK is considering adding satellite tracking devices to its clothing so parents will know where their children are. As a parent, I applaud the idea, but realistically, what teenager is going to wear GPS clothing, never mind the fact that most kids don’t want to wear uniforms to begin with. Trutex reports that 59 per cent of the parents they interviewed would buy the uniforms, but there’s no word on pricing or a tentative release date. Now if they would just develop a small GPS transmitter we could slip into our children’s backpack, then we’d be in business.
Why not just use one of those collars like they do on Meerkat Manor?
