Can’t Find Your Keys Or Your Phone? Motorola’s Keylink Might Help
Motorola is at it again. I guess some may say have been on a roll lately.
Their latest random one-off project: a key fob that let you use your keys to find your phone, and vice versa.
Called the Motorola Keylink, it’s a $25 Bluetooth-enabled dongle that you strap on to your keys.
Can’t find your phone? Squeeze the Keylink, and it’ll make your iOS or Android phone ring from up to 100 feet away.
Lose your keys? Open the Motorola Connect app, tap a button, and your keys will start singing.
Lose both? Well, then you are out of luck. Or, at least, you’ll have to find your stuff the good ol’ fashioned way. You’ve probably locked your phone in the car and then lost the keys, typical. A locksmith could always come and save you, helping you get back into the car so that you can still drive to wherever you need to be.
Motorola says the user-replaceable coin cell battery should last up to a year, and that the device is splash-resistant (though not waterproof).
As a bonus, the key fob can be set up to automatically unlock your phone whenever your handset and your keys are near each other. It seems like a bit of a security concern if you ever get mugged.
Well, you won’t be getting your hands on this tech anytime soon. Apparently, they’re sold out at the moment.
