Low-Tech GPS Device Keeps Track Of Your Little Ones

The Chalktrail is an inexpensive bike add-on that allows artsy boys and girls to draw pretty patterns while they ride. It also doubles (perhaps unintentionally) as a low-tech GPS device to keep track of your child’s every move.

Chalktrail inventor Scott Baumann, of Bellingham, Washington, says he got the idea for Chalktrail (a runaway success of a Kickstarter project, if you must know) while watching his children ride bikes and… play with chalk.

While not yet available for purchase, a deal is the works with a major toy company, and Baumann is hopeful we’ll see Chalktrail on toy-store shelves in time for the Christmas holidays. [Gizmag]
