Cobra Electronics Corporation has just announced an ingenious Bluetooth tagging system that will be used to help people keep track of their valuable to help keep them from going missing or being stolen. Called the Cobra Tag, this aptly named tag can be attached to what want to protect and with the use of an app, the tag is then paired to a smartphone. When the tagged item is separated from the paired phone, the Tag will produce an audible alert to let its owner know that the item is missing. The app will then record the GPS location of when it happened, and sends it to a pre-configured list via email, text, or even Facebook or Twitter. The app also has a locate feature which enables the alarm on the tag. Users can then use the sound to locate the missing object i.e. in this case it is probably going to be keys that have been misplaced around the house. The Cobra Tag will work with Android and BlackBerry phones and will be available nationwide starting in July with a price of $59.99.
