This location-based reminder app will help users never forget their car keys, wallet or charger again. Instead of dated sticky notes that either fall from where they're put or simply aren't attention-grabbing, this notification system will effectively remind you of all the important necessities.

The product is a two-part system; the first includes the small hardware pieces called 'iBeacons.' These small squares surround a chip that sends data to a cell phone when it senses the connected smartphone is close by. The second part to the system is the online app 'Notifyou' that receives the location-based reminder from the iBeacon chip and signals your attention with a pop-up message.

Each chip can be programmed with a specific reminder to be sent, such as "don't forget your house keys," making morning routines easier and more organized.
