GearTag Helps Ensure You Never Lose Track of Your Gear Again

Misc Gear   GearTag, now funding on Kickstarter, is a neat way to keep track of your gear.  These small wireless tags can be clipped to a purse, tucked into a wallet, or attached to your keyring.  From your smartphone or computer, you can ‘page’ your tag or view it’s last known location.  Reserve yours for a $30 pledge.

GearTags use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to communicate with your smartphone.  This uses little battery life while also giving you a range of 100 yards.  Each GearTag has it’s own unique QR code printed on one side, like a fingerprint.  If the tag is lost, the finder can scan the QR code to find out how to return it to it’s owner.  Alerts can be set so that if the GearTag strays too far from your smartphone, it will ‘chirp’ to alert you.  The GearTag batteries are not rechargeable, but should last about a year and are easily replaced. Head over to Kickstarter to find out more and to pledge your support for GearTag.

I'm an intern architect by trade, but the overarching theme of my life has always been trying to keep up with the newest, coolest technology. Ever since I picked up an NES controller, I've been hooked on the latest and greatest gadgets, gizmos, and toys. Whether it's gaming, mobile phones and accessories, or PCs and Apple products, I'm interested. I use many Apple products in my daily life, such as the iPhone 5, iPad 4, and my MacBook Pro. I also recently built an HTPC for my living room in order to stream videos to my HDTV. I'd like to say I'm a pretty well rounded techie.
