Woolet – the smart Bluetooth wallet you can’t lose in a cab

woolet2

It’s like a perpetual nightmare. The thought of leaving your wallet behind at a bar, in a cab or somewhere else where you aren’t. We’ve all had those moments, even if they didn’t turn out gruesome. But now technology is stepping up to help banish the lost dosh blues once and for all, thanks to the power of Bluetooth.

Woolet is a perfectly ordinary looking leather man’s wallet, with an integrated Bluetooth tracker. The key thing is it doesn’t look any different to any other holder of cash and cards, and in fact is actually stylish enough to carry around with a bit of pride. Yeah really.

You’ll need to load up a free iOS or Android app, and once that’s done, the wallet will alert you if you step outside a custom distance up to 85 feet. It barks at you. How cute. The product also includes an RFID sleeve to block out any hack attempts on your cards and runs on Bluetooth 4 low energy to keep down the recharge hassles. You will need to cash up $99.99 to own one.
