Augmented reality always makes finding lost stuffs a lot of fun. This time it's not Pokémon Go, but the treasure hunting aspects of Pixie make it a blast to use, especially if you’re always misplacing things.
Pixie is a new solution that uses a smartphone app and ‘Pixie Points’ — small pieces you attach to your items that often get missing. Pixie then scan maps the immediate environment and locates ‘Pixified’ items relative to the user.
Once found, the Pixie app points users to the location of the item with arrows signifying direction and distance. It’s accurate to 150 feet outside, and 30 to 50 feet indoors. Once you get close, a splattering of ‘Pixie Dust’ reveals the location, serving as the proverbial ‘X’ that marks the spot. Or, you can switch over to a sort of hot/cold game that moves a slider in real-time as you get closer or further away.
This would come in handy if you misplace one of your stuffs outdoors or it was just snatched.
Losing stuff isn’t fun, but Pixie makes it more of a treasure hunt, and less of a reminder that you’re a moron that can’t remember where he put his keys — seriously, has anyone seen my keys?
Pixie is going to be released on January 25 for iPhone users and for Android later in the year.
You can buy a four pack for $100 or a two pack for $49.99 at GetPixie. Both come with a free Pixie iPhone case
