A few limitations of this GPS chip are that it still needs a power source and a GPS antenna.  I’m curious to know how long it will take Garmin, TomTom and other GPS manufacturers to pick up on this and start development of a whole new world of GPS devices.

    Like so many of the other’s that have left messages here, I am very interested in this technology. Is it available to purchase? If so, the price. I have an idea for this product that would save God know’s how many live’s.
    I would truly appreciate a reply.
    Thank you

    Im doing research on avian movement. I would like to know if you have mounted any of your minute chips onto telemetry transmitters. Im interested in this because i would like to draw up maps of avian movement and look at migratory movement. Also want to look at the GPSing of birds incubating and have the ability to do video footage of this stage of reproduction.

  3. Erica Says:

    Where can I buy one? Has anyone gotten a reply back from the company . Everyone wants to know the million dollar question how much is it. Please reply back

  4. Rob Says:

    I am very interested in starting a business venture based around this technology. Would you mind sharing the price per unit and the range capabilities, power supply needed…etc?
    Thank you!

  5. Kuldeep Sondhi Says:

  6. Robert Kinch Says:

    My wife and I have grandchildren we would like to protect by creating some form of jewelry with the smallest GPS chip in it. Can you give us some idea of availability of the chips, price, etc. and what additional equipment would be needed for tracking?

  7. Doug Says:

    My wife recently lost her wallet. What a pain to cancel everything and now worry about identity theft. Who is selling this technology just for such a purpose? At the right price, I believe thousands would buy it.

  8. Gavin Kilborn Says:

    Dear Sir
    I can see that you have a chip on your finger but does it really work & at what cost per chip. I am in the process of starting up a project where I would need several thousand of these is it possible for you to contact me so that I can arrange a face to face meeting. I look forward to hearing from you.

  9. Rachel Armstrong Says:

    I have an idea. How much per chip(kiwi dollars if possable), and what are its maximum capabilities? size/shape flexable? would it be possable to get a custom order if i required it? is it waterproof, if so to what degree.. etc..

  10. Russ Says:

    I have been working on a project for years now and I believe your chip is exactly what I need. The challenge has always been powering of the chip and to maintain a small useable yet durable system. I will need 10 units, Based on that number would you send me the cost and availability.
