Tech Industry: Zoombak GPS locator

0:59 /

At CES 2008, Natali Del Conte takes a first look at the Zoombak GPS locator, shown at the Digital Experience event.

[ music ] ^M00:00:03 [ background music ] >> Hi there, I'm Natalie Del Conte with CNET TV, at the Digital Experience event in Las Vegas taking a first look at the Zoomback [assumed spelling] GPS locator. Now this is a GPS locator that you put in things that you're likely to lose, like your pet or your car. There's actually two different products here. You can buy one specifically for Fido, you mount it here on his collar. This one here is for your car, it's a hardwire application, and it plugs into your cigarette lighter. The pet locator is a hundred and ninety nine dollars, and the car locator is two hundred and forty nine dollars. Plus you do have to pay a ten dollar service fee every month, so it is a bit pricey. But I guess if you're likely to lose these things, you are willing to pay for those things. But I think it's more of a luxury item.
