My Personal Supermap
Via Unmediated, the GPS-enabled TrackStick has a very limited, but possibly very interesting function: “It tracks where it goes, and it remembers where it’s been.” Although Telespial Systems, the company behind TrackStick, seems to be most excited about its snooping potential — Spy on your kids! Watch your employees! — I love the idea that I could keep it in my pocket for a few months and produce an incredibly detailed map of my life.
