Tintag, the first wireless rechargeable item tracking device, was invited by crowdfunding giant, Indiegogo, to continue its funding campaign on the platform by being a part of the “Forever Funding” program. The startup ran a successful two-month crowdfunding campaign, which surpassed its initial goal of $50,000 in less than a month. When it finally came a close on the platform, the project raised $71,214 thanks to over 1,600 backers.
The company will continue to raise funds through the new Indiegogo forever funding program, of which they are proud to be a part of. The public’s response to Tintag is exciting, as the numbers show. At the end of the campaign, the initial goal has been surpassed by 40%.
During its time on the crowdfunding giant’s platform, Tintag has been extensively tested by members of the tech media. Its features include:
- Rechargeable Battery: Each charging with the Home Base companion makes Tintag ready for 4 months of use. There’s no need to replace its batteries or buy new devices when batteries run out.
- Led and Buzzer Combined: Unlike other tracking devices, TinTag offers two ways to locate your items: with the beep of the buzzer or quietly with the flash of a LED.
- Use Tintag to Find Your Phone: The communication between Tintag and your phone goes both ways. So if you can’t find your phone. Tintag can, at the press of a button.
- Enhanced Bluetooth Technology: Tintag has developed its own Bluetooth antenna that ranges up to 100 m in plain field.
- Hot Spot Network: The Home Base charger can work as a hot spot. With the help of the network of hot spots, you can keep an eye on loved ones, even from afar.
- Connect Tintag to Multiple Phones: One Tintag can be connected to multiple phones so, for instance, both you and your spouse can simultaneously locate your kid or dog.
- Lost 7 Found Community: When someone finds your lost item and enters your Tintag’s unique I.D. on found.tint.ag., a notification will be immediately sent to you, with the location of your item.
Steven Sande, TUAW, stated, “From what I see from the prototype, Tintag is the item tracker you’ve been waiting for.”
Nate Swanner, SlashGear, then added, “Tintag is easily the most impressive I’ve seen yet. Rechargeable, sleek, and more powerful than the rest, Tintag is an easy recommendation. In fact, I’d urge you to grab one, or maybe even a six-pack.”
