About

I am constantly traveling and losing things. One day, I left my AirPods at the airport terminal. I was so upset but ended up buying another set.  As I sat on another plane, I stared at my new AirPods and I asked myself, "What is someone found my old pods and they wanted to return them?".  There would be no way for them to know who they belong to.  So I thought about barcodes. Small barcodes that you can attach and work with an app or database to determine ownership.  So I designed and created the website tikz.app that same weekend.  Then I developed the Google and Apple apps. 

So have you ever lost something that you cared for but never got it back? What is someone found it? How would they know who to return it to? 

Or have you ever found something and you felt compelled to return but to who? 

The solution? tikz!

tikz is available for download on both the Apple and Google Stores.

The tikz tags are small aluminum tags that attach to any flat surface. Tag your personal or company items in the event you lose them. If your item is lost, others can contact you via the app and without giving them your information.  Better yet, they don't even need to have the app.  A camera phone will scan the QR code and our website will take care of the rest!

Based on user feedback, our project now is to manufacture fun colored tags.  Here are some sample colors we would like to fund.

Risks and challenges

This funding will be utilized to produce new colored tags that will feel more personal to our user base. The tags are to be used by consumers with the tikz app and website. Aluminum tags are expensive but adding fun colors (based on user feedback) will increase the chances of users buying them.
