Do you know where your children are…at all times? Chinese children’s clothier, Angela & Lucas, have developed sneakers to alleviate those worries.  Budiu are tennis shoes with a built-in GPS locator.  Use your smartphone to track your kids down to 3 meters from their exact location. The companion app also alerts you if your child wanders away from a specific zone you’ve set up.  Kids can co-design each pair of tennis shoes through the online store.  And for $120, your child will receive 4 pairs of sneakers and 1 tracking chip within a 2 year span. We look to China as a supplier of moderately priced goods, but perhaps we need to rethink China as a source of tech-fashion innovation.
