I was wondering which technology would be better suited to the goal I am trying to achieve. What I would like to do is embed a chip in an object and by using a cell phone, prompt the chip to send me information on its location.
I know there are chips that are now put in cats to help to track and find them if they are lost. I am trying to find a chip that is very small and light that can help me find it if it gets lost in a maximum 25 foot radius.
Initially I looked into RFID tags for this but cell phones don't have readers in them and the readers are too costly. I have started looking into blue-tooth and have gotten a little befuddled with the details. My education is in medicine, I would very much appreciate any ideas anyone may have.
