And the award for creepiest innovation goes to...

Can you say Big Brother? I know this has little to nothing to do with education, but I figured it would be interesting to any thinking person. And the potential for this to affect schools, children, and indeed everyone is vast.

The device you see pictured to the right is in fact a GPS implant. This is not a prop from Mission:Impossible or the Hitman movie. This is a real device that can be implanted under someone's skin to track their movements 24-7-365.

The GPS Tracker is so small it can be easily implanted under the skin quickly and easily with our included pain free kit with light implant gun. For short term use the rice sized tracker can be swallowed like a pill and will stay in your system for up to 72 hours. Implant or swallow this tiny tracker and you or the trackee can be located anyplace on the planet.

After reading an article this morning about tracking suspects using the signal from cellphones, I talked to my students about the implications of being tracked by their cell phones. Most of them were disturbed by this possibility. I can't wait to update them tomorrow on this little item. Imagine the implications of a GPS device such as this that can possibly be implanted into the human body without the knowledge of the subject! Scary.

  1. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

  2. I think the navigational signals transmitted by GPS satellites encode a variety of information including satellite positions, the state of the internal clocks, and the health of the network
