When it comes to sharing information about yourself to others, this can prove to be a double edged sword. For instance, it does give you a record that you can stash away for posterity to know just where you have been, but on the other hand, it also allows others to know just where you were, and where you are right now – which might spell trouble for your empty home if you happen to be on a vacation. Well, I leave that to you to weigh the pros and the cons, but here we are with the GPS Cookie which is a Kickstarter project.
The GPS Cookie is best described to be a small, compact device which will fit in perfectly into your pocket, where it relies on satellite data in order to keep track of your entire route history. Regardless of whether you have been out for a car ride, a bicycle trip, or even for a brisk walk, all you need to do when you’re back home is to remove the SD memory card, upload it to Google Earth, and you’re good to check out just where you have been exactly. It is capable of recording the date, time, and location, and will retail for $79 a pop. We’re glad to announce that the GPS Cookie has already surpassed its Kickstarter fundraising goal by 300%.
