About this project
Have you ever wondered where your items are?
People have trouble finding their things all the time. An average person spends nearly 10 minutes before leaving their home looking for keys, wallets, or handbags. This can make people late for interviews, meetings, even dates.
We get it, and that’s why we solved it. With iFind.
iFind is the next generation item locating tag. The tag communicates with your iOS or Android devices using Bluetooth and will never need to be charged. The iFind tag can be attached to all of your personal items , and you only need your phone to find them. Tag any item that you want, and it’s at your fingertips.
Unlike other locating tags, there is no battery in the iFind tag. It recycles electromagnetic energy and stores it in a unique power bank. This exciting feature frees you from the trouble of charging batteries or replacing them through the manufacturer.
The battery-free design also makes the iFind tag thin and light. At 1.25"x1.06"x0.09" (32 x 27 x 2.4mm), it can be slipped into or attached to just about anything. With its 200ft (60m) detection range and loud alarm, iFind will never let you down.
The iFind tag is ready to use in just two steps. First, place your iOS or Android device next to an iFind tag and open the iFind App for automatic pairing. Next, attach the iFind tag to anything you want to track. You can also assign a unique ID to each tag and pass it to anyone who may then locate that tag for you.
What if you cannot find your phone? That’s easy with iFind: you can locate your phone by shaking any of your iFind tags — No more frustration.
After having dinner with your friends you get a notification on your phone. The iFind app tells you that your keys have gone out of range; they had fallen out of your pocket when you were in the restaurant. Without this Rope function, you would have gotten all of the way home before noticing that they were missing.
Have you ever been desperately looking for your wallet in a large building or party? Even with iFind's impressive 200ft range and loud beep, it could still take hours to find it by yourself. Thankfully, the iFind App has the UHelp function to let you team up with friends. Share your wallet’s tag ID, and your friends can use their own phones to quickly find your wallet.
The iFind tag is environmentally friendly as it uses no batteries and is made of a biocompatible plastic. You, your pets and your surroundings are completely safe with iFind tags.
Our team spent almost three years in the research and over a year in development of iFind including design and market analysis. We are proud to produce this state of art device that is unique and customer friendly. More importantly, we want you to join us!

Risks and challenges
The main risks are our reliance on outside sources within the supply chain. The contractor for the manufacturing of the flex circuit has to order components from other vendors. If one of these vendors slips in a commitment, the complete production process is at risk unless we can afford to purchase residual inventory.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
