Ask, Imagine and BuildKids get lost from their parents all the time and parents need a easy way to locate them. If the child does not have a phone, it can take longer and be dangerous. This new spinoff would take the bluetooth from wireless headphone technology, put it into a water proof case and make it a device that can attach to a kid's clothes. Then parents could use it as a tracker and find their kid using their phone!
