    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.

    But you need your phone to find your 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.

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