Constantly losing your keys, your phone, or the remote? Israeli company Pixie offers new technology that will help you find your misplaced items . . . and keep track of them for good.
So how exactly does it work? All you need is a pack of Pixie Points – smart tags that you can affix to just about everything (even your pet!) – and the free mobile Pixie app. Made of the same polymer as Lego blocks, the teardrop-shaped Pixie Point is durable, lightweight, thin, waterproof, and even machine-washable.
Once you stick a Pixie Point onto an item of your choice, the item becomes “pixified,” meaning that it joins a closed, private network of all of the pixified items your smartphone keeps track of via Bluetooth. So, let’s say you lose your pixified remote control. All you have to do is open your Pixie app, which displays an augmented reality view using your smartphone’s camera marking the location of the missing remote control with a bold ‘X’.
Each Pixie Point has a 50-foot range indoors and a 150-foot range outdoors, within the accuracy of a foot.
How cool is that?!
