Hipkey
After its announcement at CES earlier this month, Hippih has begun selling its hipKey smart sensor in the U.S. through the Apple Online Store for $ 90. It launched on European Apple Online Stores back in December, but quickly sold out. It’s now back in stock on both the U.S. and European stores.

The hipKey is a high tech way of keeping track of your valuables. Simply attach the device to the item of your choice and you’re ready to go. Made of a sculptured one-piece anodized aluminum ring surrounded by high-quality plastic parts, its sleek oval form fits perfectly in your palm or pocket. You can even attach it to your keys.

Alarm mode – Warns you if you forget your iPhone or iPad or if someone attempts to steal it.

Child mode – Alerts you if your child wanders too far away from you.

Motion mode – Put hipKey in your bag and you are alerted if someone moves it.

Find Me mode – Quickly find your iPhone, iPad, or your keys at any time.

The hipKey’s battery is supposed to last between two and four weeks between charging. The iPhone app is available free on the App Store, while the device itself is $ 90 through the Apple Online Store.

Saw this on Shark Tank the other night but they didn’t get funded.
I’d like to have one that I could use for second-factor authentication for secure sites. IE, have to get the fob close, plus provide username/password.

That’s a really good idea. You would just need some type of bluetooth adapter on your computer/device.

Awesome!! Now I can loose my keys in peace :D
I like the looks of the app, but Stick N Find is still way cheaper:

those are actually cool & better suited for this particular use!

Last time the hipkey article came up, some forum users have posted alternatives which in their opinion were more presentable rather than the hipkey (to the day, I disagree). On the other hand, I honestly believe the hipkey is specifically designed to resemble the apple logo (that missing section) creating a subtle & unconscious familiarity to it.

–edit
even their promo product positioning is set with the gap towards the right.
