• Any tiny attachments to make eyeglasses findable?

  • Does anyone sell attachments to put onto small household objects -- especially eyeglasses -- paired with some sort of tool to help find them when misplaced? I located the EyeWhere device (http://eyewhereinc.com/order.asp); does anyone have any feedback on that device? The EyeWhere clearly has a battery in the part attached to the eyeglass; I was hoping that there could be some sort of passive device that was much smaller for doing the task.

    Something like a tiny RFID chip would be super. Are the RFID transceivers all way too expensive to make this feasible? I found a patent on putting RFID in glasses ( http://www.faqs.org/patents/app/20080218684 ), but no information about any retail sales.

    Any other ideas? Thanks!

Do you have an unusual prescription? If not, I'd just buy a LOT of cheap glasses over the Internet. You can get 3 or 4 cheapo pairs for the price of one EyeWhere.....

It's past time for some techie to patent a chip that could be epoxied to eyeglasses with a remote finder. Thank of the time it would save hunting.

Answer by jaime

It’s something that occurred to me a while ago. Just a little web browsing confirms it is feasible and economies of scale also make it easily affordable. Your search device would be – what else? – your smartphone. If you misplace that it can be called from another phone. Spectacles are probably the most commonly misplaced item but the idea could apply to a whole range of things: keys, remote control devices, wristwatch, wallet. Many of these things are becoming obsolescent as smart devices can replace them.

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
