No, however it may be made someday soon.
Will you make a working model for the next part of your project?
No, but we hope Toshiba or someone else does!! However, we do have 'play' models.

Either with solar cells or batteries.
And the beeper?
It will need to have a tiny thin battery.

Yes, you can use it to track special toys or parents could use it for house keys.

You can buy the sticker at a shop like Walmart once they will be available.
