The WhoreFinder is a tiny radio and GPS based device that street prostitutes can buy. The device emits a coded signal that can be recieved by anyone with the matching receiver unit. The receiver unit contains a GPS system that will guide the customer to the nearest whore matching his/her requirements.

The "whore" unit is carried by the whore, and can transmit data about her fees, sexual proclivities, appearance etc....

The "john" unit is carried by the prospective customer and will list all local whores by appearance, fees, etc.....

Both units require a monthly subscription fee.

       Test market in Amsterdam?

       Because prostitution is such a high margin business that they can easily afford toys like this?

       This would certainly save police sting operations a lot of time and bother.

       Are you a cop? A lazy one maybe?

       The way I hear it, you only need to drive around the right/wrong part of town and they will find you.

       LOL !!! Great for whore users.

       Surely this is now redundant with Bluetooth and the appropriate name?. BTW In Amsterdam I suspect that the phrase 'Information Overload' may apply given that you can lob an apple core past 30 working girls.

       Why an apple core?

       No reason - just a colloquialism for a universally recognisable distance (to small children anyway!).

       Buy both, and you've got a "pimp" unit.   

       Extra feature for married "johns" - automatic cut-off when the device is at the gps location of the user's home.

       kinda of baked.... Ever hear of Gaydar? Same principle, but taken a lot further.   

       How about transferring medical records as well?   

       I can't support streetwalking though. Established businesses are one thing, but there is really no justicification for streetwalking if prostitution is legal. I would want any business wandering the streets in my neighborhood looking for business. Especially 24 hours a day.   

       Ingenious, but no dice. Go fish.
