Baby GPS

Baby GPS,

Falávamos hoje em post anterior sobre as etiquetas RFID e a internet dos objetos. Outro dispoisitivo de mobilidade e localização, o GPS, permite monitorar bebês…na GB, as usual! Vejam post do New Mobilities

“New research from the University of Bristol shows for the first time that global positioning systems technology (GPS) can be used to show how children as young as three find their way around. (…) Using things around us to regain our bearings is known as reorientation and the process has been widely studied in non-human animal species. More recent research, looking at the development of this ability in children, suggests that we do not accurately use landmarks to orient ourselves until about the age of six. However, all studies to date have taken place in artificial laboratory environments rather than the real world.”
