Stuffing that fat little Airtag in that crowded wallet. Wouldn't work for me. The engravings are cool though. :)

Oh no doubt. I’m looking for a cinch cord or other dangly attachment but even those might not work well

Nah... you probably just need to get used to it much like we all did w/ stuffing phablets into out pants pockets these last few years, LOL... ;) :D

Reading that AirTags can’t be shared even within a “family”. I see the privacy concerns. I assume Apple is trying to figure this out for future ios updates. But this is a bummer. I would want my wife to be able to track my luggage and vice versa.

Struggling to imagine something that chonky in my wallet.

i agree totally. And suspect only a few folks will do it. I also suspect we will see Apple innovate in this space rapidly with different form factors. My point really was that the 3D printing community is filling the void for putting airtag carriers into a lot of places for low costs. Wallets, remotes, AirPods etc. I don’t do much practical printing but I’m making a few of these

I carry a slim wallet in my front pocket with three credit / debit cards, my DL and insurance cards, and a money clip on back with a couple of bills folded in it and it’s still bulkier than I like. There is literally no room for a chunky air tag or a tracker if any kind unless it’s as thin as a credit card. 33BFEE42-F520-40B5-8A56-B91314D1BD48.jpeg

Again, fair. I'm not suggesting anyone but me do this, and I expect it will be less than 18 months until Apple has released a credit card size or smaller Airtag. Tile already does it, no reason Apple can't. Well, battery life, physics etc, but you get my point =)

As a board-gaming enthusiast with a wife who keeps buying game organizers and piece replacements, I’ve become quite aware of the Etsy-realm 3D printer innovations! :D
