Stick-N-Find: Low-Energy Bluetooth Stickers Help You Find Your Things


Mon, Jan 7th, 2013 20:00 by capnasty NEWS

If you lose your car's keys as often as I do, you'll love the idea behind Stick-N-Find: quarter-sized battery-powered Bluetooth tracking devices you can place on any item, allowing you not only to keep track of where they are, but find them if they go missing — like those keys.

You can tap the Sticker on the radar screen and decide if you would like it to Buzz, Flash the lights or do both.

Of course, because we don't really know direction, the radar Screen can only be used to approximate the distance of the Stick-N-Find to your phone, but not direction.

So once you have located on the Radar Screen a Sticker you would like to find, you start walking in a specific direction, and see if it gets closer or farther.
