POM finds things even out of Bluetooth range

POMLosing items is a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be so stressful. The POM is a Bluetooth GPS tracking chip that attaches to your favorite items and keeps track of them. Its accompanying app displays the last known location of the item along with sound alerts to help you find whatever you lost whether its your laptop, keys or child, much like the super thin TrackR Bravo. POM’s provided peace of mind can’t be measured. One regularly priced POM tag costs $25 on Kickstarter with delivery in March 2015. POM hopes to raise $75,000 in a month-long campaign.
