As we look around the technology landscape at the beginning of 2016, I think it's fair to say that the pace of innovation is quite impressive. Driverless cars, drones, connected homes and 3-D virtual reality have arrived and today's youth don't even know of a time without social media or mobile apps.

The third category is the most critical. I argue that this is the technology about which we should really be passionate and enthusiastic. Not only does this technology have a utility, but it is revolutionary. This is the technology that will solve the greatest ills of the 21st century.

Sex slavery is the fastest growing crime in the world and less than 1% of the victims (half of whom are under 12-years-old) are identified. That problem has led 25-year-old twin sisters America and Penelope Lopez to develop Beacon of Hope. Last year, the sisters won a top prize at the AT&T Developer Summit and Hackathon in Las Vegas for their "Body Camera Hack," a prototype camera with face-tracking technology that can be worn by law enforcement officers to record their actions in the field. This year, the Lopez sisters returned to the AT&T Developer Summit to spend the 36 straight hours of the Hackathon creating their potential solution to the sex slavery problem.

It can be a heart-stopping question for parents: "Where is my child?" In parks, at beaches or in any public setting, your kid can wander out of view in an instant. But technology can provide some peace of mind in the form of a lightweight GPS tracker that can last a day or two on a charge, and offers frequent and reliable updates on your child's whereabouts. Some of these trackers are watches, some are meant to blend in with your child's backpack and work in the background, and some even give you the power to detect possible danger in your child's vicinity.

Of the kid-friendly GPS trackers we've tested, we recommend Trax Play , the latest version of Trax's GPS tracker. Like its predecessor, the $99 Trax Play offers valuable features like geofencing and augmented reality tracking via a helpful app. Trax Play also improved signal retrieval and positioning, though the device, like many GPS trackers, struggles with indoor tracking. (Note that there's an additional cost to the Trax Play and any tracker beyond the listed price tag. These devices also charge monthly service fees, which we note in the individual reviews.)

As part of our testing process, we compared generic GPS trackers to ones geared specifically to kids, concluding that kid-friendly trackers are better for keeping tabs on your child. For one, kid-friendly trackers' compact size let them fit neatly in backpacks or on smaller wrists. And many offer features that put parents' minds at ease, like geofencing capabilities and SOS buttons that can ping multiple contacts. Not every mass-market tracker offers these kinds of kid-focused capabilities, so turning to a device built specifically for kids will be money well spent for moms and dads.
