School bags with a built-in GPS will be sold in Japan from November by Kyowa Corporation to protect children from crime. Cooperating with security firm Secom Co, Kyowa has decided to market the high-tech bags, believed to be first of their kind in the world, to meet demand from parents who are concerned about the growing number of crimes and accidents involving their children. The system is able to track the location of the school bags by using satellite and cell phone waves.
