Secom and bag maker Kyowa Corp. announced a line of backpacks for school kids that feature built-in GPS transmitters that work with Secom's locational information service called Koko Secom.

The small terminal is attached to the outside of the backpack. The GPS transmitter can be removed from the backpack and attached to a belt or carried in a pocket.
The locational information can be accessed via phone, over the Internet or mobile phone.

We reported about similar location devices from Wherify. With Wherify's devices wearers also can call 911 and the service center. The Secom solution seems not to have this useful feature.

More details on Nikkei.Net (subscription) and SorobanGeeks.
