Disc Beeper

Disc Beeper is a mysterious new gadget for disc golfers. From the website:

Disc Beeper is an electronic device that is centrally placed underneath a Disc or Frisbee that allows players to easily find their Disc or Frisbee especially during the sport “Disc Golf.” This device only weighs 6 grams and shows absolutely no noticeable effect on disc flight. Disc Beeper also has a waterproof design. It has 3 distinct modes that allows up to 3 players to play at once. Disc Beeper has a push-button to turn it on requiring 550 grams of force to engage. Once the Disc Beeper is turned on, there is a 45 second delay to allow launch and attempted retrieval, allowing the user to throw it and will beep every 3 seconds until you turn it off. Disc Beeper is rechargeable via included micro usb cord. It holds up to 7-8 hours under 1 charge of 1 hour.

I think every disc golf player out there has thought of this at some point. A July 2012 release date is mentioned on their Facebook page. Interested to give this a try.

A nice little combo for all you iPad-owning artists out there.
