Email Miles, a system using GPS developed to track the emails

A new system Email Miles using Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to calculate the number of miles an email has travelled before reaching an inbox was developed on 18 February 2014.

The system uses GPS technology and internet tracking to determine where a message was sent and where it was received. It then calculates the total distance between the two and displays it on the screen alongside a map.

The system was developed by Inventor Jonah Brucker-Cohen to show how indirect the route of many emails can be.

Brucker-Cohen said the system does all of its time and distance calculations using the internet and a coordinate mapping system. When all of the mileage amounts are tallied, it adds them all and provides the user with a map, the countries and continents and miles the email travelled.
