Device notifies flyers of their luggage location
"Those using the device first register it, along with their mobile number or email address. When they travel, the TrakDot is placed into their suitcase and turned on. Using technology similar to GPS, the location of the tracker is monitored and its sensors detects when it is in the air – at which point it turns itself off to preserve battery. When it detects that the plane has landed, a text message or email is sent to the registered number or address to alert the owner if their luggage has made it to the same destination. The device is small enough to fit inside a suitcase without taking up too much room and operates on two AA batteries. Available on the market in April, the TrakDot will retail for USD 49.99, with an additional activation and annual service fee."
