paranoid parents able to track their children through electronic school uniforms

"School uniform maker Ogo-Sangyo Co has released blazers mounted with global positioning system for grade school pupils which allow parents to keep track of their children's whereabouts, company officials said Wednesday."

"The blazers carry GPS terminals inside, which are provided by Secom Co, a leading security service provider, they said. Parents are able to monitor their children's whereabouts through their personal computers. When a child faces an emergency situation, he or she can have Secom send a security agent to the spot by pushing a button on the terminal."
