FiLIP: wearable locator and phone for kids
FiLIP is a wearable locator and phone, contained within one small wristwatch, designed for children.
FiLIP Technology, which developed FiLIP, describes the company's first product as a "patent-pending marriage of assisted GPS, GSM cell tower location, and Wi-Fi hotspot triangulation for kids," calling it "the first location and communication device of its size in the world."
FiLIP features two-way GSM cellular voice capability and an Intelligent Emergency procedure. When activated, the emergency button triggers an automatic location beacon and an ambient sound recording, and calls each of five contacts until one is reached.
FiLIP can locate your kids wherever they are. To ensure accuracy, FiLIP uses more than just GPS -- it utilizes a blend of assisted GPS, GSM cell tower location, and WiFi hotspot triangulation to provide the most accurate location information indoors and out, the company claims.
