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.
