California-based startup Tile has received tens of thousands of pre-orders ahead of the release for its eponymous product, a wireless tag that communicates location data to iOS mobile devices to help users find lost objects. The Tiles emit a signal that can be detected as far away as 150 feet, and they can also communicate with other Tiles and mobile devices running the application to extend the range of detection. The release of the device, priced at $24.95, is set for this winter.
