The Innovators


WE CELEBRATE AND ENCOURAGE INNOVATION.

Innovators push the boundaries of the known world. They're change agents who are relentless in making things happen and bringing ideas to execution.

Now here’s an idea destined to be a hit with parents.

The FiLIP is a kid-friendly smartwatch that packs GPS, cell-service and wi-fi on to your kids’ wrists. All of the "but what if I need to call you from school?" excuses cited by kids when looking for the Christmas iPhone are covered by the FiLIP. Best of all: You'll save your kids the inevitable app addiction that comes with online marketplaces and free games.

Think this smartwatch will catch on? Let us know with a comment.
