Pixie, a new start-up, created an app that gives non-digital items like wallets, keys, purses, etc. that are frequently lost a digital presence. This presence is actually a sensor, small enough to attach to most items. The sensor is attached to Pixie’s app, which will locate the lost item within a range. When that item falls out of range, it will let the user know the last place that the item was identified.
Another cool feature of Pixie is that the sensors attached to various items can connect to other items with sensors, making a network of all of your stuff. I’m sure that Pixie is not the first group attempting to make technology like this, so it will be interesting to see its success, likely based on the accuracy of its tracking services.
For anyone who has downloaded Pixie already, how accurate is it? Do you recommend it?
