Grad party season is upon us again and you may be feeling at a standstill in the creative gift department. A card? Flowers? Um, a teddy bear? Ditch the clichés and gift them with something they actually need. Meet a tool that helps track misplaced car keys, phone–everything. This handy tool called Tile is an actual lifesaver, and you might want to scoop one up for yourself, too.
How it works:
It's basically the largest lost and found community ever–all activated through a tile! Attach Tile to an item (phone, wallet, backpack, anything) and locate it by sound when it’s close but out of sight. If you still can’t locate your Tiled item, you can use the Tile app to see its last known location on a map, or get in touch with other members the Tile community to find it for you. Don't worry–it's 100 percent anonymous.
Oh, and you don't even need to charge it. Tile is designed to run a full year with zero upkeep. Seriously–no battery replacement and no charging. Tile will notify you about their reTile program, which is just an easy way to upgrade your Tiles to the latest technology. Whoa–2017, right?
Tile Mate is the original version that's easy to attach to anything and can go with you anywhere you go! It's lightweight, small, durable, and perfect for attaching to keys, luggage, and even backpacks!
Tile Slim has the same capabilities as Tile Mate, but slimmer in style. It's slim as two credit cards—perfect for slipping into wallets, laptops, or anything with a slim profile. Plus, there's an option to customize the ring with four different tunes.
