StickNFind- Bluetooth Powered ultra small Location Stickers | Indiegogo

OK this one I’m not buying myself, but holy shit this looks useful. You just slap these stickers on your stuff and it tracks them, alerts you if they get too far or close. There are so many great use cases, like keeping your luggage safe (and getting an alert when it comes around the baggage carousel) or keeping some radar on your kids at the playground.

The stickers are about $10-15 each at different project reward levels. Looks like they plan to sell them for $25 each later.

It still seems less than ideal — the range is just a hundred feet with line-of-sight, the stickers are a little pricey, and the app interface looks hokey. Plus, big problem, the app only knows direction not location, so you’ll be playing hot-and-cold. But now there will be some actual product for others to compete with. And in a few years we’ll all find it economical to just never misplace small important things.

    If I can put stickers on “dignity” and “self-worth” and “direction in life” then this might be worth it.
