Has anyone seen my keys? New technology looks to put an end to lost items

StickNFind stickers look to put an end to hours of searching for the TV remote

It sucks when you set something down and then can't find it. It seems to be happening to me more and more each and every day. Well, I must not be alone, as a new technology is looking to put an end to my searching. Instead, I'll be able to pull out my smartphone and track down the lost item--at least get pretty close to it, anyway.




The StickNFind, seen above, is a small, Bluetooth-powered sticker that helps you track down items that you have misplaced. At about the size of a US quarter, the stickers are small, yet the battery life is said to be almost one whole year. The stickers pair with a smartphone app using Bluetooth and have a range of about 100 feet.


The app shows you how far away the item is and, with a tap on the screen, can cause the sticker to light up and buzz. This is another one of those crowd-funded technologies. They're currently raising funds on Indiegogo and are already at $105,752, which is beyond their $70,000 goal. On the campaign, they detail several cool and unique ways of taking advantage of the stickers. You should check it out and consider pre-ordering a set.
