"It's wearable technology for kids safety," said AT&T's Larry Taylor. "When in Baltimore there are times when you want to know if the child is at home. Or if the child leaves home. Or if they are on the playground and need to call," he added. "You can be at an O's game. If you get separated from your child. You can locate them."

The FiLIP app is available for download now on Android and iPhone.
