The Blunt + Tile Smart Umbrella Can Be Tracked Down If Misplaced

The Blunt + Tile smart umbrella is an ingenious product that features an embedded tracking device, making it easy for you to track it down if you misplace it. Umbrellas are among the easiest items to lose or have stolen because most umbrellas look the same. Not only does this umbrella look better than regular ones, but its tracking capability will help you track it down if you lose it.

The umbrella's name is a combination of high-end umbrella maker Blunt and Bluetooth-tracking technology specialists Tile, and is a suitably attractive name for what is the world's first smart umbrella.

The Tile sensor within these smart umbrellas can be used by opening up the accompanying app within 15 to 30 meters and pressing the 'Find' button, or by using the 'Community Find' feature which sends users an alert if another Tile user is within range of their lost umbrella.
