Interesting. It reminds me of this keyring my mum used to have, and every time you whistled it would go off.

I love this idea!

Here's a link to their project page: http://www.indiegogo.com/sticknfind
Basically they want around $15 per sticker + shipping (and $20-25$ once it's released) - it sounds reasonable, although I hoped these sticker would be a little cheaper.

I like it, The price is reasonable enough, and the size is good enough i'd buy 4. Under the condition the batteries are replaceable (in one way or another).

Edit:
Just found this:
Type: CR2025 watch battery. Battery is replaceable

Does the first post look strange to anyone else?

it says this
"Admittedly, pretty vlever.┬*Losing your remote, keys, and other items┬*may soon be a thing of the past."

In case these are control codes that arent displaying correctly for me only, I've split them up below:
"pretty vlever . ┬ * Losing your remote, keys, and other items ┬ * may"

I've seen this quite a few times here on Guru

Awesome stuff.. Now I just need another phone, so I can find my phone while looking on it on my phone..

But srsly.. great "invention".. With a longer battery life (e.g. 2 years+), and a longer range (200ft+) I may call it, invention of the year, or decade if you wish so..
And if they can "upgrade" it a way, that you can idd see it on a radar like screen, to figure out the approximate direction of the missing thing, it'll be a win-win
It's not quite cheap thou..
