It seems the most common reason why people either lose their smartphones or their wallets is because they forget to take them with them when they leave a public area. When they go back to look for it, it is usually gone. It’s not a very pleasant feeling. There have been countless apps that try to secure our phones, but they are usually nothing more than a lock mechanism. The SmartWallit smart wallet could solve this universal problem for good this time around.
It’s easy to think technology should be able to solve everything, right? When it comes to solutions, probably anything can be solved, but it takes thinking outside the box. That is something the guys over at SmartWallit, Inc. are certainly good at. When you think about how this smart wallet actually works, it makes perfect sense and could have been realized a long time ago. So just how does this smart wallet work anyway?
By adding a small device to your wallet, you will be able to to detect when you are too far away from it with the help of your smartphone. What happens is that if you accidentally leave your smartphone or your wallet somewhere and walk away from it, either your smartphone or your smart wallet will beep to tell you that you are about to walk away from one of them. It’s a really neat solution with plenty of features incorporated into it.
This anti-lost solution is tailored around iPhone 4s, iPhone 5 or Android phones that support Bluetooth 4.0 or BLE. The app included will even help you keep track of your purchases. Simply put, the smart wallet will record where and when you purchased something which will help you create user reports that will help you keep track of your finances in a whole new way.
The smart wallet, or the SmartWallit as it is dubbed, is currently looking for funding. This is a startup project that has gained a lot of attention lately. The Kickstarter project is looking to raise $40,000 to finalize their product, and with over 17 days to go, the project is already successful while having raised north of $45,000. If you want your very own smart wallet, you can pledge either $39.00 or $49.00 and you will receive one as soon as the Kickstarter project has ended. Never again will you fear losing your wallet or your smartphone if you decide to utilize this device. Great optimization!
