GPS jackets - Marauders map to your kids whereabouts!

A British clothing company Bladerunner, has come up with a spectacular invention that is worth being marked as a unique contrivance.

This latest innovation is a children's jacket equipped with a GPS tracking device that will help parents locate their young ones in any part of the world within a few meters.

The jacket was initially devised for mountain climbers, skiers and snowboarders but was eventually found beneficial for tracking down children.

While the company has created this garment suitable for both children and adults, the apparel for the former is furnished with a slash resistant lining to prevent unprecedented injury.

By making use of Google Inc's mapping tool, buyers can avail the opportunity of getting the latest updates of the jacket's location in every 10 seconds. Users can also get e-mails and cell phone alerts if the jacket moves from a particular area.

The rechargeable battery of the Bladerunner jacket endures for nearly 18 hours and until then it alarms parents if the child skips school or leaves the neighborhood.
