Like having control of your young dog? Off course you do, without a leash it would run away! Well the same idea comes into mind when traveling with your kids, whether it be Africa or just to the mall. The IonKids system from the firm Bluespan gives your kids some space but doesn’t let them wander too far. A perfect travel gadget! Your child wears a comfortable Wristag (kinda like a regular wristwatch) that communicates directly to the PDA-like Base Unit in your hands. When the child wanders too far away, the child’s Wristtag starts to beep and sends an alert to the screen portion of the Base Unit and helps the parent locate the child’s position. Some people might view this as slightly inhumane … but then again i’ve seen actual leashes on kids! To the discetion of the child’s behaivor.
