Clap on Clap off, phone halo helps you find your keys

At the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Chris Herbert, CEO, Phone Halo, shows Lou Ann Hammond, CEO, Driving the Nation, how easy it is to find your keys, or for your keys to find you.

The device can be hooked to anything like a keychain. When you lose your keychain you can find the device/keychain with your smartphone. Not only is there an audio beep, but there is a color strobe in case you can’t hear it, but can see it in the dark. Your smartphone can also tell you how far away the device is from your smartphone.

You can reverse the technology so that your keychain can find your smartphone.

Which car companies is phone halo talking to?

Now if only fitbit would work with phone halo I wouldn’t spend half a day looking for my fitbit.
