Hone is a Bluetooth 4.0 device for your iPhone 4S that helps you find your keys - and it's made in the USA.
1,132 backers pledged $85,426 to help bring this project to life.

Almost there!

It's Thursday night and we're just shy of our funding goal, which happened way faster than we anticipated. We're so psyched that you share our excitement for Hone. A few updates:

- We're adding an audio sonar mode to the app so visually-impaired users can find their stuff too!

- Our resolve to ship an app for the Pebble watch has strengthened. There are still technological issues to resolve so we can't promise it, but stay tuned. 

- We just taped an interview for a certain cable network show you guys might like - more on that shortly.

There's lots more to come. If you have any questions or comments, just drop me a message. Thanks again.

      Jaq - It should be helpful to the hearing-impaired. There are are two flashing LEDs on the front of the unit, but even if they are covered somehow there is the proximity sensor on the app that visually indicates how close you are to your keys. Great question!

      Would this be useful for someone with a hearing problem? Like does it have a flashing light or only sound?

      Thank you for your support! No promises on the case design, but we may make a tweak or two before we ship...

      Geoff & Louis,

      Thank you for the latest update. I just became a backer today. I was thinking for a while but I decided to pull the trigger, hope it's worth the wait. Please make Hone smaller/slimmer/sleeker for the final product...hint: iPhone 5 slimmer. Keep up the great work!!
