Whistle-and-Find Your Remote


We used to have a remote control that beeped when it was lost, but we figured that was an oxymoron, because how would it know? However, if you tend to lose yours, you can use the Whistle-and-Find to retrieve the lost gadgets. It comes with 3 caddies that you attach to your remotes and, of course, the whistle. At a price of $16.99, we were thinking we would love to have one for our car keys, our IDs, our cat, our kids…..

LOL, that’s useless really!
It even doesn’t worth $1. Perhaps it could be useful for the messy people, I don’t know!

I don’t really know how many people would actually buy this, but it is a handy invention though. How many times have I threw everything around in the living room looking for the remote. wink

@ NapMan LOOOOOL, you made a point!

I think they will try to integrate a whistle in your mouth! :D

What kind of a joke is that !!!!!!!, it doesn’t even deserve the $1!

Kinda good, but the whistle is smaller than the remote so I think the whistle will be misplaced first.

Nice implementation but doesn’t sound useful.

Agree about losing the whistle.  They should just put in something like this on the main device, Cant find the TV remote, push button on TV and the remote squawks.

Lulz. For a moment I was thinking Dog Whistle for some insane reason.

This idea is nice…although it’s not practical. Soon we would be plastering everything with these, and how would we keep track of them all? More money <_<

haha nice product, but like other people are saying, without the whistle its useless!  Maybe in the future they’ll implant a GPS chip in the keys so that you can log onto the internet and locate it at any given time… though thatd be creepy if someone hacked into it

I had a cheap universal remote that was a necklace ... but it stopped working because it was cheap.
It was fun while it lasted.

This is an interesting concept, whistling and finding items that you lose.  I know people who always lose their remotes and play on their gaming consoles or even watch the television all day.  They would definitely buy this remote out of laziness and because it’s perfect for them!

I always put my items in one place and find them easy to locate.  Being organized pays!  It’s scary how people are starting to rely A LOT on technology these days.

i remember my moms keys beeped when you clapped, along with any other noise so it deeply aggravated us when every time we tried to talk, there was beeping
does this only work with that whistle or can you whistle on your own to find it?
