You can get GPS dog collars, why not GPS wristbands? Nu-m8 – the world's first GPS locator specifically designed for 3-12 year olds – has just launched to the UK and the makers claim: “it is set to change children's outdoor play forever.” – because mum and dad will now be able to track the exact location of their wandering children on any computer or mobile. Yes it is the same technology as used for tagging offenders on curfews – but from a quick twitter poll we conducted it seems to be popular as an idea among parents. The idea behind the device from Lok8u (keep up with the txt spk) is that children will have more freedom, not less. Their parents will let them roam about more freely because they'll know instantly where they are, so children will play outside more, bringing obesity rates down and they'll all be more rosy-cheeked and healthy. Nice idea. Source: shinyshiny.tv Ten One design launches pink iPhone and iPod Touch Stylus I'm not sure about you, but I find it difficult to sometimes use my iPhone with my girly long nails. It's fine when I'm using apps but trying to touch on web links can be a nightmare. However American based company Ten One Design, has come up with a solution, which saves us from cutting our pesky nails off. It's launched the Pogo Stylus and Pogo Sketch, compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch, which are also now available in Hot Pink. Peter Skinner, Ten One Design CEO said: “We've found that the Pogo Stylus and Pogo Sketch have been crucial to the female iPhone and iPod touch community. “Since women cannot operate the capacitive touch screen using their fingernails, these products have become a much-needed mobile solution. And we're proud to be able to give our female audience what they want, now in a more stylish color.” According to the company the advanced material used on the tip of the styli is what makes it so extraordinary and revolutionary for multi-touch displays. It acts as a bridge by transferring the signal from the display to the user's hand. Oh, and they're also perfect for those of us who like to wear gloves in the winter too. Source: shinyshiny.tv
