‘BB-8 Toddler Tracking Device’ Uses Flora & GPS, Buzzes When Your Kid Strays Too Far From Safety #BB8 @BB8

This is great! This project by a group of four kids – the Young ICT Explorers 2016! – combines Flora and GPS with a piezo buzzer to alert you or your child if one has gone too far from the other.
