I feel jealousy, sometimes, from kids of today. I mean, just look at all of the awesome technology that they get to grow up with: iPhones, laptops, and high-speed internet. Of course, there is a downside to being young these days. That’s right; your parents also have access to all of this technology. Here’s one that’s sure to be unpleasant for teenagers.
The tiwi is a small device that is installed in the car of your teenage driver. It monitors everything from speeding, not wearing a seatbelt, hard breaking to accelerating while turning. Every time one of these things happens, the device will send out an audio alert to the driver. What’s more is that the parents will be notified of these actions by through text, email or voicemail. To add the proverbial icing on the cake, it has a built-in GPS system that can be programmed to alert the parent when the car arrives and departs from specific locations.
Needless to say, with this device installed, the person driving the car is going to be a lot more careful, and won’t go places they shouldn’t. The unit will cost $300 if purchased along with at least a 1-year data plan (which is required for the notification features) or $600 with a month-to-month data plan.
