Engagement ring: beware of the plotter gps hidden under the gemstone
Giving an engagement ring. A romantic gift, at least in appearance. A ring with precious stones of different cuts and colors to give to or partner and that, according to what he says the company that produces it, will ensure the loyalty of those who receive it. How? It ‘easy to say. The jewel in reality conceals something else, very disturbing in some ways: a GPS tracker that allows you to follow the movements of the wearer.
The invention, which is still a prototype but it is already doing argue, is called “The ring of loyalty,” and is produced by Gemporia, a company specializing in the sale of jewelry on the internet.
“The idea actually came to me because I was looking for a system to track the jewelry stolen or lost,” says Steve Bennett, founder and CEO of Gemporia, “That’s why I decided to mount a chip bluetooth under the gemstone. But then, when we presented the idea to customers, many of them were excited to give one to your partner. “
Bennett believes that the positives of this invention are greater than the negative ones:
“It is not only an effective anti-theft system, but also a way to put an end to unfounded fears that can often ruin a marriage. Not to mention that in the future we could design a line suitable for children, and in order to follow their movements step by step and then to protect them. “
As a business idea is not bad. Just a shame that in this way would also remove the last bastion of privacy left. Worse if the wearer of the device is not aware of being watched 24 hours a 24. A diamond, it is appropriate to say, it is forever.
