LAS VEGAS (AP) — Losing a cell phone can be exasperating and expensive. But what if your phone could call out to you, letting you know it was about to be left behind?
Zomm believes this would cut down on disappearing handsets. At the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Zomm is showing off a small device that does just that.
The Tulsa, Okla., company’s gadget, also called Zomm, connects wirelessly with your phone via Bluetooth and sounds an alarm if you walk away from it.
The Zomm also includes a personal alarm that users can activate and a button that can remotely call emergency services from your phone. It has a speakerphone and can alert users to incoming calls.
It is expected to be available this summer for $80.
