Soon losing your keys maybe a thing of the past. The Loc8tor works by attaching items with stamp sized RF tags (look larger in the pic) that are good to up to 600 feet from the handheld device. Tags can even be set to a proximity alarm, so if they wander out of a preset range (think child or pet) an audible alarm is emitted. With a push of a button up to 24 item’s locations can be viewed, and guidance is provided visually and audibly. The Loc8tor is due for release in the UK come March, and may appear on US shores sometime in May of this year. No word on price, but with RF tags that size folks might find the device a bit cumbersome.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
