Total POM: Never Misplace Your Kids or Pets Again

ECO Pact wants to make sure you don't have to go hunting for your family, pets, or belongings again, so the company has launched a Kickstarter for their Total POM personal tracker. Total POM lets you track locations through Bluetooth proximity, cellular signals and GPS, so it doesn't matter how near or far away the fob is. You can attach it to a pet's collar, wear it on your wrist, pop it in your pocket, or leave it in your computer bag and the device dutifully broadcasts its location for a year before you'll need to replace the battery, saving you from buying a new one. Total POM will come with a free year of tracking, and US$19.99 a year after that. ECO Pact's Kickstarter just started and the company is hoping to raise $75,000 to start production.
