The smartphone/adhesive tag system is the next in a growing list of devices dedicated to helping forgetful humans keep track of their stuff.
The system will contain a circuit board, replaceable battery, buzzer and LED light. The tags will be stuck to items that are frequently lost, such as car keys or the TV remote, and a custom app will allow the tags to be assigned to specific objects. When the object is lost, accessing the app on the smartphone will display how far away the object is (up to 100 feet), allowing the user to find the missing item by moving in different directions to pinpoint its location. The tag will also sound a buzzer or illuminate its LED lights, aiding in the search.
