This is a concept that I developed and copyrighted using the technology of Augmented Reality and the iPhone.
It starts with a dog tag FOB that hangs from your dog's collar. This device is lightweight, durable, water proof and rechargeable. It houses a built in GPS device that is connected via iPhone with a written App that locates your dog and displays the distance away he is along with a compass showing its approximate location. The App will be able to accommodate multiple FOBs to manage all of your pets. All you have to do is hold your iPhone up and scan the area around you. Using the built in accelerometer and magnetic compass in the 3Gs, your pet is located easily! There is also the option of viewing the location of your dog with a 2-D map display.
This lost dog concept can even be implemented in locating lost children. Perfect for finding your wondering child in large public areas like the shopping mall, festivals and sporting events.
