Search engineering

We’ve written before about tagging systems that let you label and then find things like keys and kids that tend to go missing. Trouble was, you always had to rely on a button on a base unit to get a response. The Find It All Key Finder improves the design by making every tag capable of being used to locate every other tag. It also uses a nifty location strategy; the proximity detector flashes more or less frequently depending on whether you’re hot or cold. Great for people with memory impairments; needs a fast/slow audio mode to be helpful to blind folks.
