AT&T Can Help You Track Your Lost Luggage

AT&T has the upper hand in helping consumers track missing suitcases and safe guarding personal information in public. With their new app, if your luggage goes missing, you will receive a text notifying you that your luggage did not make it to your final destination. The tracking app will be able to tell you the airport your luggage is at and a way to contact the airport directly to arrange delivery to a specific location. The app is named Smart Luggage. Smart Luggage is embedded with GPS technology to tell you if you bag did not arrive at your final destination or if the bag has left a designated “geo fence.” If you luggage did arrive at your designated carousel, the app can help you locate your bag amongst the look-a-like bags by lighting up an LED on your bag. One idea is for the Smart Luggage to be directly built in to suitcases, then sold as part of the suitcase. 

When you’re in public, everyone worries about keeping his or her passwords and pins private. AT&T’s EyeDecrypt allows you to see what intruders can’t by turning your smartphone into a window. When you wave the EyeDecrypt app in front of a document or display, the owner will be able to see the underlying numbers or words on the phone screen. The app can work on paper but can also decode or mask characters that appear on a physical location like an ATM. EyeDecrypt can be used by smartphones and/or Google Glass.
