Keycopter Will Make Sure You Never Lose Your Keys Again

Subscribe to TheFW on

Whether you’re scrambling to get ready for work in the morning or have just arrived home after an evening of revelry, there’s nothing more frustrating than realizing you have no idea where your keys are. However, thanks to Michael Wallis, lost keys could one day be a thing of the past.

The “inventor and traveling enthusiast” has created a device called the Keycopter. As you can see above, it combines a smart phone, geolocation technology, and helium to return your keys from wherever you have thoughtlessly left them.

There are some unanswered questions about the device, mainly concerning its range. It’s also unclear how much it costs — The Keycopter has a website, but it claims all the models are currently sold out, and offers no clue as to what price they sold for.

How much would you pay for a Keycopter? A good starting point would the $75 a locksmith typically charges for a service call. Of course this doesn’t solve the equally frustrating problem of smartphone loss. We think we’re going to need a bigger balloon for that…
