Your iPhone Can Search These Storage Boxes Without Having to Open Them

You know that stack of storage boxes buried deep in your closet that you're too lazy to dismantle to find that one item you're looking for? These boxes from King Jim feature a small tag on one side that lets you catalog photos of their contents, so when it's time to find something you can do all the searching from your iPhone or iPad.


Available in four sizes and ranging in price from $7 to $13, you could do the same thing with regular old banker boxes and a custom system of labels and images. But what's convenient here is the accompanying app's use of image recognition to automatically load photos of a box's contents after you've taken a photo of its tag. One thing's for sure, moving into a new place just got slightly less nightmarish. [King Jim via Akihabara News]
