    Must buy at day one if perfected.

    This will be hand for finding lost keys and other small items, but most likely this will be on smartphones before it hits market at a price that's not 10k+.

    I want one of these specifically to avoid people coming quietly and swiftly around corners. Collisions are not my friends.

    Who can afford to turn a blind eye to technology like this?

    use one of those cheap key finders.

    this will most likely be used for urban warfare, make no mistake about it.

    I doubt something like this will be available to the average consumer. It will take about 10 to 20 years before someone even thinks about bringing this to market. The only customer today is the Military.
