We all have a few things without which we don't leave the house. Phones, wallets and house keys. Despite this, every day we use a few precious minutes looking for these things. Usually when we are pressed for time the most.
The startup Chipolo
has developed a solution for this problem – an advanced Bluetooth item finder that connects to a smart phone app which notifies the user when it leaves the vicinity of the phone. If you are looking for the phone, you only have to shake your Chipolo
and the phone will ring. If you misplace your keys, simply open the app and you'll immediately know where to look. The app is available for Android, iOS and Windows phone users, who can extend their search using all Chipolo
apps in a huge Chipolo
The team, today consisting of 15 people, is led by Primož Zelenšek and Tadej Jevševar. After a Kickstarter campaign, they conquered all 5 continents in about three years. The Chipolo
family is also quickly growing and it now has more than 350,000 satisfied users across the globe, including numerous stories of how Chipolo
helped them solve unpleasant situations.
