If you often find yourself misplacing things, these smart stickers may come in handy.

These smart 'stickers', marketed as 'Estimote Sticker Beacons’, are essentially small wireless sensors that come with an adhesive backing, allowing you to attach it to your preferred location or object.

The coin battery-powered ‘sticker’ will then work its magic with its built-in antennas—it sends tiny radio signals to your smartphone via Bluetooth to update you about its location and context.

You can even attach the ‘sticker’ onto your pet’s collar to track its movements, or on your bags and purses to locate where you last left them.

What do you think—will you consider using these innovative stickers to keep track of your personal belongings? The 'Estimote Sticker Beacons' are currently available for pre-order on its website at $99 for a set of 10.

Check out how the smart ‘sticker’ can be used in the video below.
