BlueBee alerts you of its location based on other users' positions.

Startup company X6 Innovations wants to make it easier for people to find their things if ever they get lost. BlueBee is an electronic device designed to track your belongings based on the Blue Crowd Search technology, a system that ‘taps the power of the crowd’ to locate objects.

BlueBee looks like a cassette tape small enough to tuck into the pocket of your bag or your purse. You can attach it to your keys or simply store it somewhere in your car.  With Blue Crowd Search, users can find their lost items with the help of other BlueBee users. The BlueBee device can be detected automatically by other users’ smartphones near the area.

The BlueBee app has five main features. The Bee Map allows you to see the location of your BlueBee on a map. The Reminder feature warns you when you’re too far from your BlueBee device. With Smart Zone, you can save ‘safe places’ like your home or office and be alerted when your BlueBee leaves these areas. With Bee Buzz, you can make your BlueBee ring within a range of 50 meters. Remote Shutter is a bonus feature that allows you to use the BlueBee button as a remote for your smartphone camera.

BlueBee is compatible with Android and iOS. The company is currently seeking funding on Indiegogo.
