Remote Finder Summons Lost Electronics By Whistle

Illustration for article titled Remote Finder Summons Lost Electronics By Whistle

I'd never stick one of these clunky beeping remote finder devices on any remote I gave a damn about. But they are triggered by the tone of the included whistle, which gives you and your clicker a relationship not unlike Lassie and Timmy. Very cool, until you lose the whistle. $18. Bonus: They've got a keychain version with a flashlight and voice recorder, too. [1ofakind via Crunchgear]



I had a keychain that did this same trick in 1992, only you whistled with your mouth, instead of using a loseable device. I probably could have double stick taped it to my remote then, but it's probably better that I waited 16 years for an official release. Great invention, keep up the hard work!
