Here's the perfect gift for the person in your life who's always losing their keys - but you'll have to wait till Christmas 2013 to give it as a stocking stuffer.
A team of designers has invented quarter-sized stickers with Bluetooth technology inside that can track objects you're likely to misplace. You can attach one to the remote control so you'll never again have to search for it between the couch cushions, or attach one to your luggage so you'll know exactly when your bags up on the baggage carousel.
The tiny devices are controlled by a smartphone app that displays how far away you are from the objects you've tagged. Tap an object on the screen and that sticker will buzz or light up, allowing you to find whatever it's attached to. The app allows you to keep track of up to 20 objects at a time, according to StickNFind’s website.
The stickers have a battery life of about a year, and work within a range of about 100 feet.
The app also has a ‘virtual leash’ option in case you want to put a sticker on your pet’s collar, sending you an alert if they move a certain distance away from your phone.
