The Mini TrackerPad is back back back!

The controversial Kickstarter has made a return!

We ran a story a couple of weeks ago about the idea, but in case you missed it, here are a few key points to what the TrackerPad could potentially do:

  • It’s the size of a ten pence coin, weighing only 1.6g with a diameter of 10mm with 3.8mm of thickness (or thinness, whichever way you look at it). (ooooh)
  • It works by pinging its location to an app on your smartphone via a sim card which is useful for a lot of people including bikers. (aaaaaah)
  • It has a battery life of up to seven days and can be charged using a wireless charging bay. (woooooo)
A geniune product or just really good photoshop?

It was suspended on the Kickstarter site last night, but now the sticky little GPS has been located (see what we did there…?) on another funding campaign – this time it’s Indiegogo.

Backers were left confused and somewhat narked after the creator, Billy Dorey from London, failed to provide any response to scam claims. But this morning, he finally did – just not about the claims:

Exactly the same size as a 10p... interesting

On Kickstarter it managed over £50,000 in pledges, alas that was not enough as the developer set his sites on the three figured sum of £100,000. But now, on Indiegogo, the target has been set at £50,000- make of that what you will.

It's back.
It’s back.

On the failed crowd fund attempt there was over 100 comments, with, at the very least, 70%+ of those shouting “SCAM!’ or “UNFEASIBLE!”

You can make your own mind up…
