Rahul, a sudent from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in London, sent us info on a project that a group of MA design studies students are doing, called Re:Collect. It’s an RFID bracelet that keeps track of common items you might carry (phone, keys, iPod, etc) and flashes, beeps, and vibrates when these items are out of range (i.e. when you leave them behind). Above, a student shows a mock-up of the product and its packaging. It’s not clear from the email where this is in the development process, in terms of it becoming a real product, when, or how much it would cost. Maybe Rahul will chime in with Comments and let us know.
