CES 2013: Never lose your luggage again with Trakdot

1:51 /

Finding lost luggage may be easier with Trakdot, a GSM device that sits in your suitcase and lets you know where it ends up.

-Hi, I'm Bridget Carey with CNET here at C.E.S. 2013, and we have a cool gadget here that can save you a lot of headache if you ever had lost luggage when you're flying. From GloboTrack, this is the track.luggage. Stick this guy in your luggage and it will let you know where it is, but it goes a little bit more than that. What's neat about it is that it runs on 2 AA batteries. So, right there, you don't worry about charges. You're on vacation, how many charges do you bring, no. Two AA batteries will last you 28 days, and when it is in your luggage and it's going faster than a 100 miles an hour say when airplane is taking off, this will shut down. When it slows down again, it comes back on, and let you know where it is. So, if you're going to New York and it didn't come back with you in New York, well, it will connect to your phone and you're gonna learn your phone to let know hey it's in Chicago. Well, instead of sitting around the carousel going where is my luggage? now, you can go right to the guy and say, "Listen, my luggage is here. I have an exact address for it, and if you could, bring it back to me," and even has Bluetooth on this device that connects to your cellphone. So, when it's coming down the carousel, it will let you know that it's getting closer and closer to you instead of having you rather an echo with people going, "Is it here yet? Is it here yet?" Well, Now, you'll know if it's here or you'll know if some else went and took it with them. It has two AA batteries, so you don't need to have a charger and it comes with a luggage tag. So, it's easy to spot your luggage too, and then people will know that my luggage has an orange tag on it. You get all of this for 49.99. It will be available within 3 months, so the first quarter of the year, but you're gonna use subscription service once a year for 12.99. For CNET, I'm Bridget Carey here at C.E.S. 2013 here with the truck dot by GloboTrack.
