Hone, don’t ever lose your keys

Another week we take a walk on the Kickstarter financing platform. This time we bring you something you’ve probably wondered about more than once. How many times have you lost your keys? A lot, right? It’s okay, we’ve all been there, no one can blame us. Luckily for us, a Geoffrey Litwack has found a solution to this annoying problem. If you have an iPhone and temporary memory loss issues, you should keep reading after the jump.

Where did I leave the keys? Great, now I’m back to partying, in a more or less questionable state, I’ve thrown my clothes around the living room, my shoes in the bathroom and the rest of my stuff wherever. It’s 9:00am, someone calls my iPhone insistently and I’m forced to answer. Apparently it’s an emergency and I have to leave the house in a hurry. I clean up a bit, take some clothes from the closet, the iPhone and the keys to the co… Where are my keys? Where!

Have you ever come across such a situation? I’m sure I have. We lead a very busy life and it’s more than normal to lose things sometimes. I remember a few years ago when things like this happened to me, especially with the TV remote control, I wondered why nobody had invented anything to call the remote control from home. It would have saved me a lot of time.

In this week’s edition of Kickstarter I will tell you about a device that can solve this kind of incident. Hone , is the name of the device that will help you find your lost keys.

Hone is a combo composed of an application for your iPhone 4SNew iPad, and a small Bluetooth device . The idea is simple, within the range of Hone our iPhone can communicate with it, indicating with sound or vibration that the desired object is close. I do not say only keys because this application is configurable with several Hone devices, so that we can associate them with our keys, our wallet or why not, you drink (they are usually hidden in very strange places).

There is really little to explain about this idea, with a range of 45 meters Hone gives us quite a bit of leeway when it comes to finding our stuff. Smaller than a Kinder Egg the Hone is also quite versatile. It should also be noted that the project leaders have left the doors of Hone programming wide open, leaving endless possibilities for the most creative minds. But as always in Kickstarter this is just a project for now, the funding will end in 60 days and you can participate by contributing $1 or $40, being entitled to one unit of the Hone .
