My GPS Chimes are wind chimes that are triggered by an individual’s proximity to a given location — networked via GPS, cellphone and the internet. Think of it as mile-wide radius around the wind chimes, where my networked presence and GPS location (via Mologogo) send a virtual breeze to announce my travel home.

  1. I’ve read it, and I’m still clueless as to the use of this. So it checks where you are, and rings a bell when you are within the city? Does this not drive you mad when sat near it? Does it chime all day when you are at the local stores? Does it drive your wife and pets crazy?

    I can see practical uses for this, like automatically turning your burglar alarm on when you go over 0.1 miles away, or an automatic doorbell, but I still don’t get this use.

  2. This is so cool! It’s just like Mrs Weasley’s clock that tell her when her husband is on his way home or in mortal danger etc… (from HP)
