So the air tags, from the sounds of it, are a pretty big thing for a lot of you, especially those with guide dogs. I was thinking we could throw some ideas about regarding other uses of these little disks for blind folk, to kick you off:
Sports, could it be possible to attach one to a Frisbee or even a football? In theory iPhones 11 and above could work like a probe to find where the item is, even, with the use of headphones and spacial audio, tell us where the ball is.
Way points: I've seen the suggestion that an air tag could be used to label a place rather than an object. I think the example given was a shed across a wide swath of lawn. Thinking further, could we use them on the road as portable way points, drop the beacon to the toilet, the lift and our desk. Of course this is direct line I guess, so doesn't really help for navigation aside from vague direction.
People: Though I find this one a little creepy, I'm thinking slapping an air tag on my niece's forehead might help me find her in her endless games of hide and seek (she doesn't get that I'm blind) but also, a partner or friend in a bar, for example, or at a festival, or any of those lovely thing's I vaguely remember, could work well. I'm not sure if 'find my' already does this sort of thing from phone to phone, but it could add another level of independence should they need to find us, if we're lost, or if we wish to find them, because we're broke.
I think the spacial applications for these little fellas could be pretty powerful and I'll be very interested to see how they are integrated with things such as spacial audio. I'm imagining the world becoming more like an audio game where, wearing our AirPods Pro or max with transparency on, we can hear the gentle chime of our Frisbee, way up there on the neighbours roof... As we all know, Frisbeetarianism is the only true faith... Look it up.
