Losing It: Never Leave Items Behind Again

Have you ever forgotten your keys? Ever worried about where your luggage went when you checked it through the airline?

Mu Tag is a Kickstarter-turned-product that’ prepared to change the way we find lost items. It’s pretty simple. Attach a $25 Mu Tag to any item and it will track the item with a tiny GPS sensor. Then connect the tag to your phone and give the tag a name for the item. Then you can track that item anywhere, anytime. The battery on each Mu Tag lasts three months.

The world’s smallest consumer tracking device should prove to be an unforgettable new offer in tech, and for lost luggage.

What do you think? Worth the $25?

While AMA (ask me anything) sessions are very popular on Reddit for users when someone interesting pops on to answer questions about their career, life or any other topic, it’s limited in that it’s all done via a keyboard. With Periscope, all Steinberg had to do was bring up the app, connected through his twitter, and start broadcasting video and take questions via text on the app from his followers. A tweet went out and notified his fans that he was on and ready to talk screenwriting and the movie business or anything that comes up.
