Any Inventors Out There?

Just about every cordless phone comes with a button on the charger that you can push when the phone is lost. The phone beeps until you find it and push a button. An elegant solution to a widespread problem -- losing one's cordless phone.

So why haven't any companies put the same function on remote controls? (Maybe someone has, but I'm not aware of it.) I have several remote controls -- one for the TV, one for the receiver, one for the VCR, one for the DVD player, and one general all-purpose remote. With two small children in the house, chances are that at least one remote will be missing at any given time. Why, oh why, isn't there a little button on the DVD player or receiver, etc., that will make the remote control emit some sort of noise?
