Track your luggage using an iBeacon

This is a brilliant app idea, assuming it works. Put an iBeacon in your luggage, get notified as your luggage arrives at baggage claim. Genius! [Via iOS Dev Weekly]

    Because it’s just waaaay too much trouble to actually watch the luggage carousel? I’d be impressed if it let you track your bags anywhere in the world.

    Didn’t Woz try to create a product that specifically location-tagged personal items like this?

    I tried that this winter (wrote my own app). It was great to be able to hang back, away from the crowd at the carousel, until I knew my luggage was near.
