Tile will find your lost keys, or whatever

Every now and then, a really clever device hits the market.  I just saw this one, Tile.  It is a small plastic square that can be attached or hooked onto something you don't want to lose--keys, computer, backpack, bicycle.  When you need to find the item, your iPhone acts as a homing device--visual and oral.

You can also use the gizmo to report a lost item, at which point everyone else's Tile acts like a detective agency to find it and report back to you.

I guess I missed the launch back in 2013, but this will surely be on my gift list for the future.

Thanks to Carla Berg, at the Society for Participatory Medicine, for writing about this on Facebook.

Here's the video.
