Chevy adds KITTY LOC8TOR to new vehicles – No, it won’t find your cat

How many times have you spent the day at the mall, sporting event, or even your office only to find that you’ve forgotten where it was you parked? Honestly, I can’t say that I’ve ever really encountered this situation. Sure, I might be off by a row when I go looking for my car, but I can’t remember a single time where I found myself wandering around a parking lot in search of my vehicle. However, for those of you that find yourself spending more time looking for your car than you do driving it, you’ll be happy to know that Chevy is looking out for you.

The KITTY LOC8TOR is a gadget inside your car that sits there, waiting for the day that you suffer from amnesia while shopping in the mall. You press a button on your keychain and the base unit in your car will make any number of noises to let you know where to go. The best part is that you can record your own message to be amplified throughout the entire parking lot. You know that pranksters everywhere will have a heyday with this one.

This interesting little gadget will be available in upcoming Chevy vehicles, though we’re not sure when it will be available, or what the premium will be. Thankfully they have given us some insight into their wonderful little acronym. KITTY stands for Key Innovation That Talks to You. How fascinating.
