Retrievor Self Charging GPS Tracking Device Seeks Funding

A new GPS tracking product has turned up on crowd sourced funding site Indiegogo. The project is seeking $80,000 with 30 days to go and has so far raised a little over $10,000. The project is for a self-charging GPS tracking and retrieving device that can be placed on cars, trucks, boats, bags, and even other people.

The device is about the size of a quarter and about as thick as four quarters stacked together. It's designed to interface with Android devices, iPhone, and other web applications allowing users to track just about anything from anywhere they can get with connection. The Retrievor is 1.10-inch in diameter and 0.39-inches thick.

The device uses a SiRFstarIV GPS processor for accurate tracking. Coverage for the device will cost $1.79 monthly with the entire first year cards upfront. A pledge of $169 or more will get you one of the first devices manufactured.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
