The latest little gizmo that everyone can probably expect to get as a stocking filler this Christmas is the Tile, a teeny device smaller than your ATM card. You can stick your Tile to any of your important items – laptop, bag, keys, car, etc. – and with the help of the accompanying app, any time you misplace your item, you can use the homing device to locate it. Or if it’s proving a little too difficult to find, you set the Tile to ring, so you can find it by sound.
Not only that, but let’s say someone is to nick your belongings. If you activate the item “Missing”, and the entire Tile community will be activated to locate it, and anytime anyone with the Tile app comes within your missing item, your phone will be sent the location. All of this sounds so simple that it’s borderline genius, and may be the end of lost things forever!
