Some 5.000 people backed Slovenian tech startup Chipolo on Kickstarter and reserved their little plastic chip coming in all the colours of the rainbow. Today’s your chance to get one as part of our 10 Days of Christmas Promo.
Chipolo has a built-in Bluetooth 4.0 transmitter that can be clipped to pretty much everything that you’re likely to lose or misplace. Once synced with an app developed for smartphones running on Android and iOS, the tagged items (up to nine) can be tracked as long as they are within a 60-metre range. If an item goes out of this perimeter, the user then receives a notification, which can come particularly handy with pets and hyperactive kids.
People with big, messy handbags, i.e. most of the female population, will be relieved to know that the localisation system works both ways. Indeed, they can find their lost phone by shaking a connected Chipolo. The chip will then send a signal to the phone making it buzz, saving users from time-consuming rummaging through their stuff.
