Meet the luggage tags that beep

 

Happy New Year everyone!

Hi there!  It’s Donna and thank you for allowing me to come into your inbox.

Today, I’d like to talk about luggage tags that beep.

Meet the luggage tags that beep

 

Yes, these tags sure work and they are quite handy for anyone; especially so for a blind person.

 

When you are in a busy airport, or at a conference, and you need to depend on someone sighted to help you identify your luggage, then the beeping luggage tags come in very handy.  How do they work?

 

You attach the tags to your luggage and then you have a remote that you can press that will pick up the encoded tags on your luggage.  It beeps to within 50 feet of where you are.

 

You can also use this little gadget or device for other purposes.  Just use your imagination and see what you can come up with.  All I know is that I can use it when I travel and am in airports or train stations or even at hotels.

 

I am happy to endorse this nifty little gadget as I constantly use it when I travel to navigate to my hotel room.

 

I hang the tag on the door of my hotel room and then I use the transponder to locate the tag on the door.  There is a beeping sound that is emitted when the transponder is pressed.  You can hear the beep as you get closer.

 

So go out there and make friends with the luggage tags that beep.

 

That’s it from me for this week.

The headset’s ability to map a space and talk people through it may prove more important than the mixing-imagery-with-reality stuff.
