Given how technology has advanced over the years, it is not surprising that some innovations have arisen that allow us to begin tracking our luggage in a more hi-tech manner, instead of tying a brightly color string or tag to identify our bags. We’ve seen various concepts and solutions, one of them being Trakdot which debuted earlier this year at CES. The good news is that if you were enamored by Trakdot’s features, you will be pleased to learn that the device has begun shipping to customers and if you were so inclined, you could order one for yourself.
For those wondering what Trakdot is, it’s basically a luggage tracking device that can be placed in a luggage which will notify the owner of the luggage where it is via an accompanying iOS/Android app. Notifications can also be sent via SMS should you not own a smartphone, and basically what it does is it offers peace of mind, letting you know where your luggage is at all times. Granted mix-ups can and will happen, but at least with Trakdot you will be able to locate your luggage which will save you and the airline company time in trying to figure out where it went.
The Trakdot device is priced at $49.99 and is available for order via its website. It will also require a $8.99 activation fee and an annual service fee of $12.99.
