>> LYMBIT - NEVER LOSE ANYTHING AGAIN
It isn't every day I get contacted directly to write about an item - first
time for everything!
a tracking device for your every day objects, not the first of it's kind
on the market - we have seen the likes of
on the market previously, but what makes this project different it's rivals?
I had the opportunity to respond directly; focusing on this question.
The general concept is the use of Bluetooth Low Energy which is detectable
when in range of a mobile device that has the Lymbit application installed.
In principle; this would give a short range of ten to thirty metres -
since any mobile phone with the application can detect the device, building
a network of smartphone users means it can be found anywhere in the world.
The paired application offers the following features:
- movement sensor
- device proximity search
- movement and distance notifications
- device location mapping
But what makes this unique from it's rivals?
Not only can you utilize a crowd sourced scavenger hunt - but, you can
also directly communicate with anyone who happens to be nearby your
object and possibly get them to move it to another location and/or get
it returned to you.
Of course; the concept only works if there is a sufficient network of
users out there using the associated application - however they want
to take it further. They are currently working on establishing a network
of sensor end points with various cities to build a foundation network.
Lymbit currently is seeking a modest $30,000 USD funding on
- they are almost at their funding goal, but need that little extra support
to get over the finish line.
