No More Lost Luggage


Last year airlines lost more than twenty-six million pieces of luggage in North America alone. Now there’s a new gadget that will provide flyers with a better chance at being reunited with missing baggage. The Trakdot Luggage Tracker, which will be available in March, is an ultra-light, device that you place in your checked bag. You can then follow the luggage in real-time (as long as it’s in range of a cell phone tower) anywhere in the world using your mobile phone or the company’s website. It’s even programmed to send text alerts when your bag reaches the luggage carousel.

    For some reason I don’t think that airport security is going to be happy with an active transmitter in the luggage 🙂 Also if this is actually approved, doesn’t it disprove the whole “turn off your devices” thing…?
