 'Zubie' Is A Car Monitoring Device Which Can Share Information With Car Owner On Facebook

A new plug-in device, dubbed 'Zubie', which not only tracks a car's condition and location, but also lets the owner share that information on Facebook, was developed by scientists.

According to the New York Times, the hardware side of Zubie is a Fig Newton-size "key" that plugs into a car's OBD-II diagnostics port.

The 99.95 dollars worth Zubie unit also has a GPS receiver and a cellular data connection.

Drivers can access information about their cars using a Zubie app for iPhone or Android devices.

The car's location can be shared automatically by setting up groups that will be notified of your whereabouts, a useful feature for families.
