Tile: A Device That Lets You Easily Track And Find Lost Items
By Erwan Xiao, 05 Jul 2013
Tile is a small, low-energy, Bluetooth tag that easily attaches to your keys, bags, laptop or any other item.
Using the accompanying app on your phone, Tile allows users to track and find missing objects.
Users can hunt for their tagged items using the map function on the app, and can even trigger a sound through the Tile so you can find it even if it’s well hidden.
If a Tile is marked missing outside a user’s range, it sends out a signal that puts other Tile apps on the search for the missing item, and sends you a notification when found.
All this happens securely and anonymously, so even the person whose Tile app found the item will not know that they've found an item.
“Tile is changing the world by making lost and misplaced belongings a thing of the past. We are giving people back hours of their lives that were previously wasted searching for missing possessions,” said Tile co-founder and CEO Nick Evans.
“Today we are launching a movement that will revolutionize the way we find lost items, by bringing the entire Tile community together to make the system more robust for everyone.”
Tile can be preodered today, and ships during Winter 2013/14.
