Chipolo - keychain for finding things using a smartphone

Sometimes it is difficult for us to find forgotten keys, remote control, wallet or other valuables. The unique Chipolo keychain will help you in your search. The project has already been launched on the Kickstarter fundraising platform.

Chipolo is a compact round keychain that can be hung on a keychain, put in a wallet, attached to a bag, to a laptop, or even to a pet's collar. Finding a thing with Chipolo and a mobile device is as easy as shelling pears. To do this, you need to install a special program on your smartphone or tablet and connect to the key fob via the Bluetooth 4.0 low energy wireless interface. By launching the application on a mobile device, you can track the location of the key fob on the map, which will emit sound signals to facilitate the search. The range of the sensor is 60 meters.

Chipolo is also equipped with a temperature sensor and a replaceable battery, which will provide up to 6 months of battery life.

The Chipolo Keychain is compatible with iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPad, iPod touch 5G, iPad mini, Samsung Galaxy S3 and Samsung Galaxy S4.

The project is currently at the fundraising stage. The developers have already managed to raise more than 60 thousand dollars, although only 15 thousand were required to start mass production. You can support the project and order a Chipolo keychain on Kickstarter.
