LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- A digital device that can track your lost luggage and tell you where it is had been introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

A company called Trakdot has introduced its Trakdot Luggage tracker that can be slipped into a suitcase and report where it is in case the luggage didn't end up in the city its owner though it should, SlashGear reported Monday.

The palm-sized tracker can report city-specific information of its location and update that in real time, Trakdot said.

Registering a Trakdot tracker on the company's website will allow tracking a suitcase using a smartphone, it said, and the phone can track multiple Trakdot devices.

The tracker is scheduled to launch in March with a price tag of $49.95 and will require an $8.99 activation fee and an annual $12.99 service fee.
