We usually refrain from reporting on wallets from Kickstarter, because they’re a dime a dozen and all are pretty boring. The Woolet is different. It features some technology that lets it do stuff most other wallets can’t. It’ll sync up with your phone through Bluetooth, and send you a notification if you ever walk away from it. It also works the other way around: if you leave your phone behind, your wallet will ring! But that’s not where the features stop. If you can’t find Woolet, just launch the app and start looking for it; like a game of hot-or-cold, the app will guide you to it. Better yet, you can press a button and have your Woolet start making an audible alarm. It tracks the wallet’s last location, even if you’ve forgotten the last place you’ve seen it. And there’s even a Crowd Detection function: “with a simple press on your phone, every other Woolet user will start scanning for your lost Woolet. When they get within range, the GPS location is instantly updated to your phone.”
The best part of Woolet? The batteries will never need charging! The company is currently testing kinetic and body-heat charging methods for this. If all goes well (and the project is fully funded, 2,100%), you could receive your Woolet in May, with a $99 pledge.
