Amidst today’s hustle-and-bustle world, it’s easy to lose track of things, namely your wallet. That’s why Dover, Delaware-based startup Woolet has set out to create the ultimate money holder to keep men’s most essential belongings safe by combining the best of technology with skilled handcrafting.
Woolet is an ultra-slim smart wallet that alerts you to its location when misplaced. Embedded with a Bluetooth 4.0 module, the leather accessory communicates with its companion iOS and Android app sends a notification when a connection (users may specify any distance between 20-85 feet) is broken — meaning if left behind or stolen. This, of course, makes losing your wallet and all of its valuable contents nearly impossible.
Based on an ARM Cortex-M0 processor, Woolet is self-charging and available in a pair of colors — black and suede — to fit anyone’s style. Beyond that, the wallet also uses sound notification on your phone, which enables its app to easily locate the missing object by ringing its built-in speaker. If truly lost, the owner can simply activate the crowd detection feature so other Woolet users can scan for their wallet.
Furthermore, the accompanying mobile app automatically records the last location it saw your Woolet. This means you already know the best place to begin looking — something that will surely come in handy after a night on the town. Are you prone to losing your wallet?
