Sticknfindinhand575If you are like me and put your keys down and then forget where you put them then Stick-n-find may be the device for you. Stick-n-find is a sticker with Bluetooth embedded in it. Stick-n-find is a small device about the size of a quarter and will stay on almost anything you put it on. It comes with a replaceable watch battery which will last about a year. There is a Stick-n-find app for both for both Android and iOS devices that pair with the app.

As you come closer to an item that has a tag on it you will see the indicator getting closer to the target point on the phone. You can also turn on a sound and light indicator through the app so that when you are very near to the device that you looking for the sticker will admit a beeping sound and a small light. Stick-n-find has also added the ability to create a virtual leash. The way the virtual leash works is you create a distance from you that you will allow a sticker to go and if the sticker goes past that distance and alarm will go off in the app. You can also have an alert go off when a sticker gets within a set range.

Stick-n-find was an indiego project The retail price for two stickers should be around forty-nine dollars and it should be available beginning March. To find out more information about Stick-n-find visit their website.

Final Pick of the Day

Posted by KL Tech Muse at 10:01 AM on January 25, 2013

Techpodcast NetworkIt’s a last day of CES, Jeffrey Powers, Andy McCaskey, Alltante Sparks and Daniel Lewis gets together and talks about what they saw during the event. There were somethings that wowed them and some disappointments. They all found some small company doing inventive things and that is what they concentrated on. The average price point that they saw was around $119. Then they talked about the various pics of the day.

The first pic by Allante Sparks is a fun pic is not really a tech thing but is certainly something a lot tech people would want and that’s an Ironman suit.

The second pick by Daniel Lewis of Audacity to Podcast was from a company called Nady Systems and it is a Bluetooth wireless audio module. It is the BTM series and at this point is not yet available on their website. What this module will allow you to do is plug-in any microphone, including an XLR microphone and then pair that microphone with your computer, iPad or iPhone wirelessly using Bluetooth. This device will run about $169.90 availability is unknown.

After talking about a problem he had with a certain companies pr representative, Andy McCaskey then talked about a product he really loved called Stick N Find. It is a Bluetooth device that is the size of a quarter and about an eighth of an inch thick. You can stick the device on anything you want to track. The device is then paired up with an app on your phone. It will work with either Android or iOS. You can have it track if something is out of range or within range of the apps. For example, let’s say you always lose your keys.  You can put the sticker on your key and when you lose your key you simply tap on the app and as you move toward your keys it will start to beep and get louder the closer you get. Another example let’s you have a child that wanderers a lot you can place the sticker on something they carry all the time and if they get out of a certain range from you the app will start beeping. This was a Indiegogo project originally they asked for $70,000 they ended up getting over $931,000. One sticker runs $25 and you can get a pack of 10 for $199.

The final pick of the day was the best of all and that was Jeffrey Power’s pick it was the TechPodcast booth and all the great people who worked hard all week to keep it up and running.
