"I can't find my keys!" Is this a line often repeated in your home? Take the lost out of found with myBiKN, an app plus phone case that knows how to find your belongings.

First download the myBiKN app, dress your smartphone in the corresponding myBiKN phone case and attach the BiKN tags to important things like your keys, or even your dog or child.

If one of these precious items goes missing, simply click on the app to see on a map where they are located. You can also send audio alerts.

Reversely, if you lose your phone, your things can find it for you. And you can also set an alarm to sound if one of your tags wanders out of range.

Download myBiKN: Apple iTunes.

Here's how it works:

Type n' Walk
Have you ever walked right into someone while typing or reading your phone? Type n' Walk uses your phone's camera to create a transparent screen so you can continue moving and see your surroundings while replying to texts, emails and more.

The stealth app allows you to be completely aware of what is going on around you while looking at your phone. Use it as a spy tool, as you like.
