Those of us who are constantly misplacing things could use Woolet. For $99, the pouch syncs to your phone over Bluetooth and will help you to locate your wallet or other item if you’ve lost or misplaced it. It includes an alert to your phone, a built in distance tracker and even a howling alarm that can help you to find the location of the missed item.
Woolet is the brainchild of Wooletco, a Delaware-based company that has raised almost $160,000 on Kickstarter. It has a mini-sensor on it and the phone will vibrate to warn the owner if the phone or another item is lost. The app will show the owner the wallet’s last recorded location. And, believe it or not, the Woolet can send signals to other Woolet owners to relay the exact location.
As the designers said, “Woolet is just 9.9mm thin, yet ready for anything. Unlike other smart wallets, Woolet is a ‘full wallet’. This means you don’t need to compromise on what you take. [Plus] batteries are an essential component of any smart device but are also often its weakest component. That’s why we designed self-charging batteries to provide dependable power that lasts.”
Woolets can be pre-ordered from Kickstarter and the products are expected to ship in May.
