If you’re the forgetful type, prone to misplacing a set of keys, losing a mobile phone, or feeling a cold dread as you look at the space where your laptop should be, we might’ve found the answer to your prayers.

Say goodbye to hours spent turning the office upside down or rummaging through your house, and give a warm hello to the Loc8tor. This canny little gadget that can find your valuable possessions when you absent-mindedly misplace them.

A 21st century step up from keyrings that beep when you whistle, the Loc8tor is essentially a personal homing device. You simply attach homing tags to whatever items you value and can’t afford to lose and then, when you inevitably do lose them, you can use the hand-held device – assuming you know where you left it. The on-screen directional display and increasingly high-pitched beeps guide you towards your valuables from up to 600 feet away.
