It seems that just about every day when we turn on the news there is a story about a child that has gone missing, an Alzheimer patient wandering off or some other story where a loved one has gone missing. Whichever of these is the case the one thing they have in common is that there is always plenty of worrying and concern among the people frantically search for the missing. A company name Revolutionary Tracker in New York is doing something to help us find our loved ones and maybe even prevent some of these missing person cases from ever happening with their line of wearable GPS and communication devices.
Their products included two versions of watches that not only have built in GPS but can also be programmed with phone numbers to stay in contact with mom, dad, a guardian or whomever you wish. For those that remember the Dick Tracy comics these watches will seem familiar as the watch he always wore that would allow the detective stay in contact with his office and let always know where he was in case of trouble.
“Our goal is to bring an unparalleled level of functionality, capability, ease of use, and relevant presentation of information to give people the ability to extend communication, knowledge, protection, and care for their loved ones” is part of the promise from Revolutionary Tracker's website.
The main question most people will have is the system secure. Revolutionary some of the most secure encryption 3g technology but as any other technology system it can not be said to be 100% secured. There is always going to be some concern about someone hacking into the system but that is an extremely remote possibility. Even though secure may be a big concern you must ask yourself if the benefits outweigh your concerns.
