Loc8tor: Personal Homing Device

Rue Liu - Nov 22, 2006

Often misplace your keys, your pets, or your children? Often forget where you parked your car in the parking lot? Well, if that sounds like you, then the Loc8tor is here to the rescue, as their doctrine is “don’t lose it, locate it.” The device is nothing incredibly new in homing technology, but it does provide the first affordable personal homing device of its kind.

Just tag any item you wish to keep track of and locate incase it later gets lost. When you need to locate it  the Loc8tor device uses a combination of audio and visual cues to guide you to your misplaced item up to 600 feet away. In Alert mode an invisible safety zone can be setup around the Loc8tor alerting you with audio-visual and vibration alarms should tagged items move out of the set boundary.

Each handheld Loc8tor can track up to 24 tags. But just be sure to have the Loc8tor strapped securely to your body so you don’t end up losing the device itself. The basic package starts at $99.99 and additional tags are $44.99 each.
