GearEye Uses RFID To Track Your Gear

As photographers, we are constantly lugging around a ton of gear. Everything from tripods and light stands to lenses and SD cards. It can sometimes be an incredible pain to keep track of all your gear, making sure you have it with you, making sure you have the right equipment for a given shoot, etc.

GearEye is a new RFID-based system that is looking to get your support on Kickstarter. GearEye works by using a system of RFID tags which ping a control/receiver unit which you access through your smartphone app. This allows you to check your list of gear before heading to or leaving from a shoot to make sure that everything you brought with you is in your bag and that you did not forget anything.

The RFID tags come in a variety of shapes and sizes that are meant for everything from SD cards to Lenses. You simply tell your app what a certain RFID tag is and then you are off to the races. The tags require very little battery power and can last years on only a single charge.

GearEye is looking to acquire $60,000 in Kickstarter Funding, and that campaign opens today. If you are interested in learning more or supporting the campaign you can do so over on the GearEye page, here.
