I love Uncrate. I love Kickstarter. The combination of the two make it pretty easy to find some sweet little gadgets.
Bluetooth 4.0 in the new iPhone means that it is capable of using devices that are much better about battery drain. The concept of a bluetooth keychain isn’t new, but the Hone is quite different. It lasts long enough to make it a good idea.
Finding Your Keys
Losing keys is a common issue. The idea is a great solution.
Hone for iPhone 4S and the new iPad 3 is Bluetooth low energy device for your keychain that lights up and audibly vibrates when triggered so you can find your keys. It runs for six months on an included battery and has a 150+ foot range.
It works with an iPhone app. You launch the app and press find. The device vibrates and lights up so you can find your key set.
You may have to find your iPhone first (luckily Apple baked in Find My iPhone for that).
Time and Price
It’s a Kickstarter project. You have a few days to get on board there, and it costs $50 now for one Hone and free shipping in the US.
