Know Where jacket phones home with GPS data

Marc Perton

Sure, there are already jackets designed to include integrated controls for your audio player, cellphone and other devices. And some of them even look better than the Know Where jacket from Germany's Interactive Wear (which, face it, isn't exactly hard). But how many of them have an integrated GPS unit that can phone home with realtime tracking data? We assume the point of including the epaulet-based GPS unit in the jacket is either to allow an employer or parent to track the jacket's wearer without forcing her to carry a separate GPS device. However, we can't help but think that once the wearer knows he's being tracked, he may just "forget" the jacket somewhere, even if that means giving up that swanky integrated phone and MP3 player.
