GPS Blazer

Schools in Japan have been using RFID to keep tabs on students for a while now, but parents over there will soon be able to keep take kid-tracking to the next level thanks to GPS tags built right into their school blazers.  The GPS-enabled blazers are made by school uniform maker Ogo-Sangyo Co with GPS technology provided by Secom Co.  In addition to letting parents track their kids, the terminals also have a panic button that children can push in an emergency, immediately summoning a security agent to their exact location.
