The hotbed for expensive and wacky gadgets and gizmos Hammacher Schlemmer has announced a new device called the Driving Activity Reporter that is intended to allow parents to keep tabs on where and how their kids are driving. I guess the device could also be used if you have a spouse you suspect may not be faithful.
The gadget is a small device about the size of an average flash drive that has a magnet on the back allowing it to be hidden under a seat or on any metal surface. Inside the case is a 16-channel GPS receiver that collects information from GPS satellites and stores it inside the small device.
The memory inside the gadget can store info on up to 100 hours of driving activity and plugs directly into the USB port of a PC for download. Software included with the device allows the driving information to be overlaid on maps and show the speed the car traveled. The product is available now and sells for $229.95.
