phone halo

phone halo aims to solve the age old problem of losing your belongings, especially your wallet, mobile phone or keys. phone halo is actually a small device that you can attach onto your things that will allow you to track them down when they are lost. the small dongle has bluetooth and GPS built-in so that it can contact your phone or computer to give you details on where to find your things. to find a missing item, users simply open up the phone halo application on the phone or computer. a signal is sent to the dongle and at first an alarm will go off, allowing you to find something if it is within earshot. if it isn’t there, the device will give users a map that will lead them directly to the item. the device even warns you as you move further away from your item, hopefully reminding you to get it before it is even lost.

  • I wonder how big it might be. Don’t see it mentioned anywhere.
    Sure is a nice idea we all have thought of, but here seems to be the first one able to transfer.
