Second time is the charm? Eventually, disc golfers will evolve past the 1990's and embrace equipment change.

I feel like passive RFID stickers would be pretty cheap and easy for the stickers. Ranges are pushing 30' now, problem I think is you need a good reader.
Upside, no need to plug in a disc, current downside is not PDGA legal. But who cares if your Rec Round bag has a couple RFID stickers. They already have LEDs and button batteries packing taped on.

I honestly don't think things will change much, unless money starts flowing into disc golf. And that's going to be a few years...or maybe MANY years from now. If ever.

I'm currently testing the MVP tri-LEDs for visibility in overcast/wet/dark conditions. They work well but I'm hoping for a tech upgrade sooner rather than later.

I think there's a video of Dave Dunipace saying the biggest breakthrough in disc design would be a distance driver with 0 turn and 0 fade. Like how a seasoned Teebird will just keep going straight.

I must say.. THIS is how you start a thread!

It may or may not be possible at all, but the frisbee scientists should develop a disc that flies like a boomerang, somehow.. the ultimate trick shot disc haha
