There's a new Kickstarter project that wants to build a closer connection between our real lives and mobile devices. Created by the Rowdy Robot team, they've made a device called Tōd, which it hopes the Kickstarter community will be eager to fund.
Tōd is a programmable Bluetooth dongle you can connect with Bluetooth 4.0-enabled devices, such as the iPhone 4s, Droid RAZR, and HTC One S and One X.
The device uses proximity triggers, which work at up to a 500 foot range, and connect to a Tōd app on your smartphone to keep track of your belongings. It can be used to find where you parked your car or attach it to one of your pet's collars so its easy to find it when it gets lost. Check out the product pitch in the video below:
