I had this idea during the night.

What about Lojack for Children and the Elderly?

They do it for cars and computers. Why not chlsdren and the elderly?

An elderly person goes missing from a nursing home? BANG! Lojack will spot them in hours if not minutes!

A child goes missing? BANG! Cut way down on missing and/or abducted children! Predators would be caught!

I know that the ACLU would argue that it's too invasive. But if you have a child, would you suscribe to the service like you do for cars and computers?

Maybe a Lithion powered microchip implanted or a bracelet. (Trouble is, a bracelet could be removed.) Or a pill you swallow and have to be replaced once a year.

wasn't that long ago when there were people wanting to chip all new borns for pretty much the same reason you bring up. I'm actually thinking it might not be a terrible idea.

There's also a niche for a temporary lowjack for when you're drunk and out on the town.

How about execs who travel to South America? Or sea crews in Somali waters? Teens who travel to Aruba!

"Lojack. When your life depends on it!"

I should write the company.

I bet anyone who's ever had a missing child would approve of this technology in a heartbeat

Not a bad idea. As for logistics of how to implement, that could be troublesome. Implants would be rejected as to invasive, and you would eventually end up with them implanted in a majority of adults once the kids grow up. This could be a concern for privacy.

Jewelry of some type might be OK, but as was stated it can be removed. If that route is used, please for the love of god, don't make it light up or beep when activated.

"Alright Timmy now that...........wtf......why is your bracelet blinking a red light and beeping........you little bastard....." Dead kid.


For the elderly, a bracelet would be perfect. They are not usually kidnapped, just wander off. Kids would be tougher. Maybe something that could be attached to the skin semi-permanently above the hairline or behind the ear that can be activated from anywhere. Nothing implanted, just stuck on with really good glue or something....lol. Maybe derived from the stuff barnacles use to attach themselves.

hopes and dreams

marketing passive RFID that's powered by the reader for human implantation is much more plausible. it has been tried and the highest level player in that market (verichip) went tits up two years ago. not to mention that the alex joneses of the world and civil libertarian groups were going ballistic.

1) It would not be mandatory. You'd have to pay for the service. So therefore, the "evasive" argument wouldn't have a leg to stand on.

2) No RFID. That requires someone scan it like they do on chips in animals. This would have to be something in pill form maybe. You take it one a year, and a normal person would just "poop" it out in a year and you'd have to renew the contract and get a new "pill". You don't pay for it, the service goes away, so does the "pill".Lithium powered encased in stainless steel.

You'd have to eat an awful lot of cheese and Vicodin for that to take a year to work it's way out.
