There are things we always use and lose, like keys. Sometimes we know they are in a certain room, but we still can't find them. The solution called FINDER is based on RFID technology. It consists of two parts: tiny stickers, which contain special info, and a terminal with a transparent screen. Users simply attach the stickers to things they always lose, then use the terminal to input its name as identification. Whenever they lose something now, they can use the terminal to receive a signal from the sticker and locate the object. The terminal indicates the direction, the distance to the target and highlights it with an illuminated circle.
