DropTag Tracks Abuse with your Shipped Packages

The DropTag from Cambridge Consultants is a Bluetooth 4.0-powered tag that adheres to a package and tracks drops, shakes, and any sudden jerks, using an accelerometer.  When the package arrives to your doorstep, you simply turn on your Bluetooth 4.0 enabled device, fire up the accompanying app, and within seconds you’ll be able to see what kind of abuse your goods received in transit.

The DropTag can be placed on the inside of the box, and for about $2 (inclusive of the watch battery that is said to be good for up to a few weeks), you have an ironclad insurance policy for your shipped goods.  The company has yet to sign on a vendor, though FedEx or UPS would be an obvious candidate for this new marvel of technology.
