Tile is the first device of its kind. Tile’s range can go far beyond that by using the Bluetooth connection of neighbouring iPhones running the Tile app to cast a wider search net.
If you mark a Tile outside of your range as missing, Tile sends out a signal that puts other Tile apps on the search for your missing item.
This happens in the background, and means that if someone else running the Tile app comes within range of your lost object, the Tile app will identify your item and send you a notification of its location.

An Israel-based startup company, Visualead, has launched a new technology that will change the way QR codes are displayed on ads. Visualead’s embedded QR codes don’t exactly hide the QR code, but make codes "odd-looking" to attract interest of a viewer just enough to make them pull out their phones and scan it.
Visualead’s generator enables users to embed QR codes into any image or advertisement in a user-friendly way without the need for any graphic design skills.
Funded in April 2012 by Kaedan Capital investment group and private angels Visualead's mission is to make QR Codes more appealing for customers and more valuable for brands.
