Kevlar, meet GPS

John Moe Sep 20, 2011

Laipac Technology introduced their newest bulletproof vest, the S-91, which adds GPS tracking to Kevlar and armor plates. Sounds great for knowing where your troops are and if their possibly wounded; however, this also sounds like how the villain in a spy movie tracks down your every move and picks off your troops one by one. Hey Laipac Technology, I hope you made sure this stuff is un-hackable.
