GPS Tracking Meets Augmented Reality

 

For people with adventurous pets or children, the Trax GPS Tracking device might be a worthwhile gadget to purchase.  The real-time GPS tracker includes an app with handy features to help the user keep a watchful eye on their pet or loved one. The app and fob work independently of one another meaning the user can locate other app users they connect with.

The app utilizes augmented reality technology that has been gaining ground as of late with items like Google Glass. Using the camera viewfinder, the user can see where their child or pet is heading in real time with arrows indicating what direction the trackee is heading—a feature especially helpful for those who are directionally challenged.

The Trax GPS Tracker retails for $199 and is available on iOS, Android, and web platforms, with availability for Windows phone coming soon.
