Congo: Karen Ross’ Tracker

Tracker 2

I cannot find any information on this brand name, through Google searches or eBay searches or even the US Patent & Trademark Office. I am therefore inclined to believe it is fictional.

    Tiger electronics filed the trademark in 1995 for handheld electronic games (?!), and apparently either forgot about it or abandoned it in 1996.

    Or, the filmmakers tapped someone at Tiger to make the prop, they trademarked it, and when the film was done with, they canned it. the dates line up, and the device does look like a Gameboy wannabee. . .

    I saw that, but it didn’t seem like a good fit to me. I’m inclined to chalk it up to an odd coincidence.
