StickNFind- Bluetooth Powered ultra small Location Stickershttp://www.indiegogo.com/sticknfind

Ultra small Sticker with Bluetooth, that you can stick on any device, person or animal, and find them with your Smart Phone (Apple iOS & Android).


I like this idea.
I may just have to get a few to stick on one my cats and on my phone. I'm always misplacing my phone.

Well then.....what a useless product this is.





<I was just kidding about the phone :)....not about the cat who goes and sleeps in closets, under beds, cabinets.>

It sounds like something I could use on my remote.

From the "Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get me!" department, I could probably think of several surreptitious uses for the Stick-N-Find device. Here's one from the Stick-N-Find website, itself:

You could also stick the Stick-N-Find on your wife’s car.
Once she pulls in the driveway, you get a notification, clean
up your mess, and go wash dishes before she comes in.

Don't forget to hide your mistress!

If you happen to have a stalker, ask an ally to secretly adhere a Stick-N-Find to her purse, pocket or bag and receive a warning if she comes within 100 feet of you, although changing out the battery yearly may be problematic.

There may be other surreptitious uses. ;)

Totally useless product.

1. Only has a battery power for a year.

2. It's a low power blu-tooth device, thus only a maximum of 30' range during optimal conditions.

3. Although the app for a cell phone shows a radar like image; it does not compute nor display exact location even when within range. It only displays range from the object's sticker itself.

4. By nature it's a sticker, thus can come off rather easily due to it's size/weight compared to the flimsy adheasive contact application pad it incoporates.

4. It's cost? $35 for a set of 2 "stickers"-----> I think NOT. :nono:

One year is a long time and the battery is replaceable. No problems there that I see.

The range is 30 meters (line of sight) or about 100 feet. Seems a useful distance to me.

In a house I'm sure the lost items will easily be found with this app even without exact location on the radar.

As far as the adhesive :

How good is the Glue on the Stick-N-find? Will it adhere to any surface?

We use 3M VHB adhesive. It adheres to most surfaces and creates a virtual weld. It achieves full strength bonding in about 1 hour after Sticking it.
3M VHB will adhere to: Glass • Painted surfaces 
• Metal • Painted/sealed wood & concrete 
• Outdoor & harsh environmental applications 
• Plastics • Leather and more!

Is it easy to remove the stickers once the adhesive cures?

It is not easy nor hard. You will need a little strength, and they will come out. You can then peal easily any residue left.


Price..yea..that is a sticky one.
