Lost & Found Sound Tag (Image courtesy Taylor Gifts)
By Andrew Liszewski

As far as I’m concerned the Lost & Found Sound Tag is a solution to a problem that already has one. It’s basically a high-tech luggage tag that allows you to record a twenty second message of important info like your name, phone number and anything else you think might help get your bags returned if they go missing.

But as someone who will always choose the high-tech route even I think a standard luggage tag is a far better solution. There’s no batteries to die, no electronics to malfunction and they’re far more likely to survive the ‘TLC’ of an overworked, underpaid baggage handler. And even with a single red button interface I guarantee there will be people with no idea how to make it play back your message. On the plus side though the large yellow cross design will probably stand out on the luggage carousel. That is of course if the tag wasn’t removed before the flight for being a suspicious looking device.

It’s currently available from Taylor Gifts for $14.98.

  1. I’m with you Andrew, what silly idea. They could have at least put a bit of thought into it’s design. Maybe make it out of metal or rubberized plastic. It looks like one good hit from a hard object and it’ll fall apart. I hate poorly designed products. Even if this thing was built well I agree it is a solution in search of a problem. I suppose it _might_ be useful if the Baggage handlers are blind and it had remote activation.
