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.

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. :)

Thanks!

MrDon,

Any ideas in other ways this tech could be used?

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

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!
