The Chinese company 361 Degrees International Limited has released a line of children’s shoes, the highlight of which is the presence of an integrated GPS-transmitter. This navigation system will not allow small users to get lost and tell parents where their children are now. To track the location, a proprietary companion application installed on a mobile device is used. By the way, the parent using the same application can specify the boundaries of the safe zone and, if the child leaves the territory, an alarm is triggered.
The sneakers are equipped with the MediaTek MT2502 Aster board, which combines a GPS module, a microcontroller, Wi-Fi, a GSM / GPRS modem, Bluetooth 4.0, a power management unit and a 520 mAh battery. From one charge, the shoes can work up to two days. To restore the battery is a special platform. Sales have already started. The cost of a pair of 361 Smart Kid Shoe sneakers is around $ 80.
