The Tile App

We are all guilty as charged when it comes to misplacing our keys, phones, handbags and the list goes on. The guys at Tile have created a genius Bluetooth tracker that helps you find your lost stuff in seconds. Stick it on your belongings and let Tile track your stuff with an integrated app available to download on Apple and Android. If your Tile is within 100 feet of the Bluetooth range, a loud tune will be played until you locate the lost item.

But if your phone has magically gone missing and you can’t find it, just press any of the Tile trackers and your lost phone will ring – even if it’s on silence! Isn’t this impressive?

The app also records the item’s last location and time, giving you a good indication on where to start looking first.

The tracker is also water resistant and approved to IP5 standards. The shelf life lasts for an entire year and Tile will replace it with a brand new tracker, at a fraction of the cost.

It’s a no brainer!

In June we saw the launch of this $399/£299 masterpiece. The company spent an astonishing £50million in the last four years to develop and investigating the "science of hair." The 100 plus engineers have tested it on 1010 miles of human hair and created 600 prototype just to get it right.

We have learnt that Dyson sent his engineers to a college to take hairstyling classes.

"I really wanted them to understand what hairstyling was all about and how pros use dryers in the salon," Tom Crawford, Dyson's head of product development, explained.

The eight times faster than other hairdryers, promises silky strands and a salon finished blow-dry.
