Re:Collect Gadget Bracelet helps you find lost items

I can't tell you how many times I have misplaced my glasses. One time, I couldn't find them anywhere and sent the whole family looking for them. They were eventually found in a waste paper basket! One of our cats must have accidentally swiped them off the table. Perhaps you can relate with other lost items? Your cell phone, keys perhaps? Then you and I will appreciate the Re:Collect High Tech bracelet . This awesome gadget bracelet is the brainchild of a group of MA (Master of Arts) Design Studies students from London's Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design. It uses the latest product tagging RFID (radio frequency ID) technology - the successor to bar codes - so you don't lose your valuable items. Basically what you do is attach the RFID tag on, say your cell phone. If you forget your cell phone at your favorite watering hole, the bracelet lights glow when you are about 3 feet away. At 5 feet, it also beeps. And just in case you are so tipsy you don't notice the glowing and the beeping, it starts to vibrate as well at 10 feet away. (If you don't register even that, one assumes you're being carried out!). But seriously, it is very easy to forgot where we put down keys, cell phones and so on as we are so often in a rush these days. The young inventors made a video to show how it works. Pity the camera doesn't follow the girl and show the bracelet changes. But still the concept is cool. If they can make the tag a lot smaller to attach to the side arms of my glasses without dangling, I'm buying! The team is working hard canvassing support to take this idea to market. I think they have a winner!

  1. Protects your valuables, maybe. But for my daughter - it would help her find the cell phone she sets down and then can never remember where she puts it!

  2. My husband could us a glasses finder too. Me, I put mine on when I get up and take them off when I go to bed. But hubby takes them off to read, on to see TV and on and off they go. And round and round in the house.
