The Cobra Tag

This Bluetooth-enabled key fob promises to help scatterbrains like me keep track of their keys and Android or BlackBerry smartphone by giving a notification when the two are separated.

At about 2.25 inches tall by 1 inch wide, the Cobra Tag fits easily in a pocket with a few keys on its ring.

Speaker

The speaker on the back of the Cobra Tag is small, but it's quite loud.

Key fob

We used the Cobra Tag to keep track of our keys, but you could attach it to a backpack, a purse, or any other item you'd like to keep nearby.

When separated from the Tag device, the Cobra Tag app will mark its position on a Google Map.

Of course, it tweets

In the event that the phone is the half of the equation that's missing, the app can also lock the phone with a PIN and send out time and location data via e-mail, Facebook, and Twitter.
