"I’ll be honest, I very rarely get excited about a product on Kickstarter, which is why it’s very rare to see us promoting any of the campaigns. However, this one is pretty cool."
"Here is a smart gear management system that lets you keep track of your items on your smartphone. GearEye combines with RFID tags you can attach to your items for easy tracking. GearTags are easy to attach to your equipment. With the push of a button, you will see on your phone what’s missing. "
"If your profession requires you carry lots of different components such as camera lenses, computer hardware or similar. You might be interested in a new gear management system called GearEye, which has been designed by a team based in Miami Florida to help you organise and track your equipment."
"So you have lots of gadgets that you carry everywhere you go? With GearEye, you are going to have an easier time tracking them. It comes with RFID tags that you can attach to your gear to keep an eye on them on your smartphone. The tags are affordable and easy to use. GearEye tracks your items and lets you know when something is missing. It also has a “locate” function."
"...GearEye's new RFID tagging system for your gear could change the way you pack for your shoots forever. Thin stickers in three versions allow you to tag all kinds of gear..."
"GearEye's solution goes beyond Bluetooth trackers with its ability to conveniently tag individual pieces of gear. Each RFID sticker is ultra-thin and adheres to just about anything."
"GearEye hits Kickstarter to help people locate valuables..."
"They’re also cheaper, with 40 RFID tags costing less than one Bluetooth tag...The current version of the app allows users to add 30 items in one list, up to a maximum of five lists per user. Future versions won’t have any restrictions, but there’s no timeline on when that might happen."
"If you are constantly misplacing your belongings then this device could save you a lot of time.
The GearEye is "the ultimate gear management system" that works by tracking RFID tags which have been stuck to things you want to group or locate."
"Can something as simple as a smart sticker make sure that no camera gear is left behind? GearEye thinks so — the new system that uses radio-frequency ID, or RFID, tags to track every piece of gear down to the SD card is headed to Kickstarter for funding."
"Losing equipment is one of a photographer’s biggest fears. But, it happens...
GearEye aims to solve this problem by tagging and cataloguing all your equipment. It keeps track of it all, so that you don’t have to. We’ve heard promises like these before, though"
"Preparing and packing for shoots is one of the least pleasurable parts of my job. Making a list of what I need and then then packing into the bags, then questioning whether you packed something, so you unpack stuff and realize it was already in there. Ugh.
GearEye could well become very useful indeed to take the stress out of packing. “
“ They use super thin, passive RFID (radio frequency identity tags) stickers that you stick onto all of your gear.”
“As they are passive they don’t require batteries and have a range of about 3 meters"
