If you’ve ever lost anything (and who hasn’t?), you might want to give this idea for the next big thing a closer look. The Tile App uses technology to keep track of stuff.
You just attach a tile to something you want to hang on to (like your keys, or your phone, or your backpack or your car in a parking lot), and if it goes missing you use the app to track it down. Of course, all of this assumes you’ve managed to keep track of your phone…but you wouldn’t do that, would you? The app will even help you find something that’s been stolen using signals from other tiles to target a location. And at less than $20 each, the tile is also affordable, especially when you’ve attached it to something valuable, like a computer.
