Mrdon,

Great idea. A redundant check for an elevator would be useful.

How about furniture when the moving company throws it all around like sacks of potatoes. But that is like shipping... hmmm.


I got it... Monitor my lunch. No one is going to steal it!

Cabe, This tech could possibly be used as an alternate accelerometer to monitor the speed of an elevator cart. If a certain speed rate has exceeded the target fall threshold, the elevator controller can adjust it to the proper value. Just thinking out loud. LOL

shehan, I agree. There are a multitude of applications the DropTag can be used in. I can really see the Maker community embracing this technology to solve a variety of free falling problems with this technology. Sir Issac Newton is probably turning over in his grave because of the DropTag product. :)

Saji,

Yes, I did. But the process to make a claim is a nightmare. I have let it go, to be honest.

Which is their goal anyway.

Saji & Chuck,

Some accountability would be a good thing.

I sent a gift to someone recently. It was a piece of art. It went a small distance, 30 miles or so. During that time, it ended up smashed to pieces.

Zero accountability.

I don't know about FedEx, Cabe, but the frantic pace at most delivery companies doesn't allow for a lot of concern for fragile contents. No one tries to damage packages, but costly mistakes are inevitable.

@Shehan:

Yes but the cost will be very high for this if they decide to do it. Im not sure who will bare it. Surely the government will refuse it.
