Load the tracker with a couple AAA batteries, and slip it into the glove box (or any spot) in your car, and wait for it to come back.  Retrieve the stick, plug in into your laptop, and it’ll syncs up with Google Maps, Google Earth, Map Quest and even Virtual Earth, showing you an exact trail.  The device even records the time it took to get from one stop to another, so you can not only lecture kids for skipping school, but also for driving too fast.

The tracker costs $250.
