[CES 2012] If you feel the Murphy might strike you sometime in the immediate future, you might want to enlist the help of the Cobra Tag G5 loss prevention system that targets personal valuables, boasting up to half a year of battery life. What makes the Cobra Tag G5 so special? For starters, it will rely on PhoneHalo technology that will alert you whenever you leave (normally) a tiny item such as smartphones, keys or other essentials behind. This small, sleek key fob device will be paired with a free companion smartphone app, “talking” to it via Bluetooth where a separation alarm will link your valuables to your smartphone. The system will constantly monitor the distance between the phone and tagged items, making sure your ears will be greeted by an audible alert whenever the item and the Tag G5 are separated. It will even play nice with the iPhone 4S over Bluetooth v4.0, so you need not worry about purchasing the latest smartphones and not having them play nice. Expect the new Cobra Tag G5 to roll out in Q2 this year for $59.95 each.
