Useful scenarios for Bluetooth trackers

Techstination feature for Friday, December 13, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.          New uses for Bluetooth tracking technology.    Trackeroo is a company that has designed clever colorful silicone cases for Apple Airpods…that are designed with a pouch for a Bluetooth tracker…like those from Chipolo or Tile.   Product designer Ken Willis…

“So you have two pockets, the AirPod case goes into one pocket and the Trackeroo goes into the other pocket and it is silicone rubber so it can stretch to meet different sizes and shapes of the tracking device.”

You can find Trackeroo on Amazon.  In the meantime, Ekster has partnered with Chipolo to build in a solar rechargeable tracking card into a smart wallet…complete with RFID blocking.  It is designed with a button that makes credit card access easy.  It’s smart and stylish.  There’s more at www.Ekster.com.
