Still, it seems unlikely that a teenager would willingly wear a GPS-laced outfit. According to the article, only half of kids 12 and under (who were surveyed) said that they wouldn’t mind wearing the clothes.

I think that statement goes without saying. In fact, I’m surprised that half the kids are willing to do it. Maybe it’s the fact that the kids are 12 and under. I would think that if they ask 12-18 year old teens, there would be a much smaller fraction of willing kids.

As a teen, myself, I find it really deprecating and insulting, and basically an infringement of our right to privacy as a human being. On a more general note, though, with so much tracking technology being available (and more widely used) today, I’m just wondering: are we heading to a “1984” scenario?

I certainly hope not.
