A new gadget that fits into car’s cigarette lighter receptacle and uses Bluetooth technology to scan for missing items the moment you enter your car and notifies you if you forget to bring your phone, wallet and other daily essentials has been developed.
When you start your car, the Bluetooth enabled charger will search for your phone and other items. And if it doesn’t find your phone, Bringrr will notify you with a flash and sound. To provide more functionality, it also contains BringTags and Bringrr App. The creators of Bringrr have also included a standard USB port on the front of the gadget to allow users to charge their mobile devices during a drive.
BringTags comes in use when you want make an item traceable by Bringrr. It is a circular tag which emits a Bluetooth signal traceable by Bringrr. The Bringrr will do a Bluetooth search of all the BringTags and if any item is not there, then a notification will pop on your phone mentioning the items which you have left behind. The BringTag consist of an interchangeable battery which last for a year. It also uses Bluetooth LE (Bluetooth low energy), which helps in reducing the battery consumption of your smartphone.
“One of the most influential and repeated pieces of feedback that we received was the massive amount of support from backers that don’t have cars, or use other methods of transportation that do not have the AC adapter,” Bringrr co-founder and CEO Aldo Beqiraj told Mashable. “Initially, our focus and positioning of the devices was based around not driving away without your things, but we now are broadening our focus to suit a more general audience.”
Bringrr App is available for iOS, Android and even Google Glass. The Bringrr App syncs with your phone’s calendar and will remind you to bring your tagged items. The app also helps in tracking down tagged items which are misplaced. Within a range of 50-150ft, the app will guide you towards the item’s location. And if you are still unable to find it, the BringTag’s in-built speakers can be activated to find it by sound.
Currently, the system only works in a car, but the creators are working on developing the gadget for people who rely on other means of transportation.The gadget is expected to cost around $29 and BringTags will be in the $19 range.
