Have you ever experienced losing your keys or bag in a room and only finding it after searching for it a long time? Most of us probably have. HTC aims to make it easier for people to find lost stuff by coming up with the HTC Fetch. This is a Bluetooth enabled tracking device which was trademarked earlier this year and can easily be attached to your keys, bags, or any similar object.
The HTC Fetch basically pairs up with your HTC smartphone using Bluetooth 4.0 technology. If you ever lose the item that this small device is attached to your smartphone will log its last known location on Google Maps coordinates. This helps you get a broad idea on what area it is last located.
A person can also manually activate the beeping alert from their smartphone app to make it easier to search for the lost item at home or at work. You can even attach it to your smartphone so as to easily find it if it’s lost.
One other feature that’s interesting is that it has a remote shutter function. This makes it easy for you to position your smartphone in a certain area and have it take photos even if you are not near your device.
