Where was the Buddi GPS tracker when Jack Bauer needed it last season? Oh well, better late than never. The Buddi isn’t available just yet, but when it does launch, you can expect your Buddi-wearing buddies to be found via GPS. The U.K. company behind the gadget already has a similar product available for your pet, so it’s a safe bet that the human-based device will work just as well. Then again, I’ve seen some very smart dogs that leap past their Invisible Fence, so all bets are off on the intelligence comparison. Personally, I vote for the canines because they don’t look for the darn fence even though I’ve seen some people actually try to reach out and "find" it.
Not sure I’d want a tracker on me at all times, but I can see the social integration aspect. Who’s betting that we’ll see a Facebook app to track your buds once this product launches? As soon as I see this update, I’m outta here: "Kevin Tofel has just stepped into a public restroom – 9:28 am"
