Got a letter from Kickstarter: Hello, This is a message from Kickstarter’s Trust & Safety team. We’re writing to notify you that the iFind - The World's First Battery-Free Item Locating Tag project has been suspended, and your $40.00 USD pledge has been canceled. A review of the project uncovered evidence of one or more violations of Kickstarter's rules, which include: A related party posing as an independent, supportive party in project comments or elsewhere Misrepresenting support by pledging to your own project Misrepresenting or failing to disclose relevant facts about the project or its creator Providing inaccurate or incomplete user information to Kickstarter or one of our partners Accordingly, all funding has been stopped and backers will not be charged for their pledges. No further action is required on your part. We take the integrity of the Kickstarter system very seriously. We only suspend projects when we find strong evidence that they are misrepresenting themselves or otherwise violating the letter or spirit of Kickstarter's rules. As a policy, we do not offer comment on project suspensions beyond what is stated in this message. Regards, Kickstarter Trust & Safety

I really hate it when I can't find my wallet or keys. I even had to buy a new car key once, which are very expensive (200€). The iFind doesn't need a battery, as it's competitors (like http://www.producthunt.com/posts...) do, makes it an instant buy for me. "A Bluetooth device without a battery? Is it really possible? Yes, it is now with the iFind Tag, our patent pending implementation of Energy Harvesting circuits and Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy (BLE). Basically, ambient electromagnetic sources such as Wi-Fi transmitters, cell-phone antennas, and TV masts can be converted into enough electrical currents and stored in a power bank in iFind, which simulates a battery that continually supports a BLE radio."

Ordered as well. Looks better on the eye than tile.

This item looks very cool although this space is getting crowded. I'd love to check it out when it comes out (after preorders)
