The 'iKON' Small Tracking Devices Attach to Almost Anything

Adedayo Charis is a designer based in Gold Coast, Australia, and the creator of the iKON -- a small tracking device that attaches to valuable items and even pets so that they can be more easily found.

The versatility of the products means that consumers can place the small tracking devices wherever they need, be it on the collar of a cat or dog, their keys, phone, wallet, purse, luggage or anything else that they don't want to lose.

Once the iKON is attached, the Bluetooth technology within it allows consumers to connect to a mobile app that can track the item as long as it's within a 70 meter range. If something is further away, users can "get assistance from the iKON community" -- meaning that they can be notified with a message that shows the location of the item once sending out an alert to other users.
