25 Cool Back-To-School Gadgets


Tile App

Lost laptops, wallets, keys and other miscellaneous items can be found quickly and easily via the Tile app. Small white squares can be attached, stuck on or dropped into any item and will be tracked and sound an alert if triggered; the Tiles feature a built-in speaker to be easily identified. Ten Tiles can be added and tracked, and users can see whether they are getting closer or farther away from the Tile within a 50- to 150-foot range. The Tile app also saves the last GPS location where the Tile was seen.

Through its Kickstarter campaign, 49,586 backers pre-ordered Tiles, totaling $2,681,297. Currently it can be pre-ordered for $18.95.
