|Bringrr reminds you to bring your phone|
Monday, 21 May 2012 14:00
Most of us have done it at least once: driven off only to eventually realise that we have left our mobile phones behind.
These days, cellphones fulfil so many functions, that finding yourself without it can be a major inconvenience, not to mention a safety issue. The Bringrr is a nifty little gadget that will ensure that you never drive away without having your mobile with you.
Devised by a man named Jim Logan, the Bringrr is a small device that plugs into your car’s power port and works with all Bluetooth enabled handsets. Once you have plugged this little forget-me-not for phones into your car and paired your handset with the Bringrr, it will sound an alarm by beeping and flashing a red light whenever you start your vehicle and it doesn’t detect the presence of your phone. However, if your phone is somewhere in your car – even if it is buried deep inside your handbag or in your laptop bag – the Bringrr will still be able to pick up the Bluetooth signal.
The Bringrr is available in two models: the Classic and the Bringrr Charge. The Classic merely functions as a reminding alarm, but the Charge version pulls double duty as a reminder and a cellphone charger, with a separate model for iPhones and one that works with phones that charge with micro and mini USB cables (such as Motorola, BlackBerry and most new smartphone models).
