Let's invent a beeping keyring
A guy who works nearby just stopped in to see if anyone found his car keys. Nope. But it occurred to me that if you didn't know where your car was in the mall parking lot, you could press a button on your car key and make your car beep. Why hasn't anyone invented a beeping keyring? Maybe something that works via Bluetooth so you can tap a button on your phone and make your keys beep.

Of course, if you don't know where your phone is, and you don't have a web browser handy so you can fire up the Find My iPhone tool (or Android equivalent, or whatever), but you do have your keyring, you could press a button on the keyring and make the phone beep.

Get on it.

OK, that's pretty slick! Do you have them on the kitties?

Nope, I actually haven't gotten any yet. If the kitties went outside, I would probably give this a try!

I think the 100-foot radius would be pretty limiting for cats, though. Outdoor cats range much more widely than that.

There was a time you could whistle for your key ring (or clap your hands) and it would beep...

They are everywhere! I just stumbled on this while on the way to something completely different!
