Keychain I SPY   (+4, -1)  [vote for, against]
A keychain device for the scatterbrained.

No, I'm afraid I cannot arrive at a better name.

The Keychain ISPY would be a small digital camera. It would reside in a keychain only a bit larger than usual, about one and three quarters to two inches long and perhaps one inch wide. Upon placing an item down that one consistently forgets, (glasses, cell phone) you take a snapshot. The ISPY, to remain cheap, has a one-picture memory, and a rez of perhaps .5 MP--perhaps less?

The bulk of the device would be the LCD screen. It'd possess a 'snap' button, a 'clear memory' button, and an inlaid 'power' button-- like the ones you have to get at with a pen point.

(??) Baked
At 40 grams, 58 x 40 x 15mm, 20x0.1 MPix. And £39.99 sounds cheap to me. Dream bigger, young man. [DrCurry, Aug 03 2002]

No expense spared then - I like it. Croissant.

Actually, I tried to spare as much expense as possible.

And so that you don't lose the keychain, you take its own picture via a mirror. But then there's no memory for anything else.

Now, dammit, where did I put my bloody keys?
-- DrCurry, Aug 03 2002

Thought someone would say that. I'd hoped one's keys are the belonging they keep closest, and is nearly always with them. The only other way would be to imbue people with photographic memories-- which creates a whole new set of problems.
