Community Lost & Found – Tiles are Shipping!

Tile pic1

An earlier blog post presented the SelfStarter project called Tiles, a small chip developed to help locate misplaced items using a smartphone app.  Considering this as a tool for those with organization challenges (where did I put that??), the Tile offers a few advantages over others I have used as it doesn’t run on a battery which can be yet another obstacle with use of locating tools.

Options for community locate and find are also being developed with the device.  Now in production and being shipped, here is a recent update on the Tile which appears easy to use, requires no battery to assist with locating those items that somehow seem to walk away…

With the possibility of a community lost and found feature, the Tile offers possibilities for individuals who are challenged with material management!

More for those that are organizationally impaired or perhaps consider it a cognitive support?
