At this point in time, it's a surprise that we haven't seen more inventions like the Trakdot Luggage Tracker. The idea is simple and clever and one that would save travelers a great deal of stress and money were the concept more accessible.

GlobaTrac's innovative device can fit in the palm of your hand, it's remarkably lightweight and designed to fit snugly within your baggage before your possessions are checked at the airport. A quad-band GSM chip inside the Trakdot Luggage Tracker detects the location of your things and can communicate this to you with the help of a map-integrated smartphone app.
