Sometimes remembering to bring your cell phone along can be as difficult as memorizing the words to the Gettysburg Address.
Thankfully, a new product designed by Manchester-based Bringrr is providing helpful reminders for forgetful cell phone users as well as reassurances for busy people “on the go.” For its efforts in creating a product that saves both time and productivity, Bringrr has been named the “Innovation Rocks!” award winner by the New Hampshire Business Resource Center for the month of July.
With CTIA – The Wireless Association announcing that there are over 276M cell phone subscribers in the United States, Bringrr’s development of a product that gives users a “safety net” to ensure that they have their mobile technology when they need it most is particularly timely.
The way that Bringrr works is simple – it works in any car and with any phone that has Bluetooth capabilities. All the user has to do is plug it into a car’s power port or lighter outlet and pair it with a cell phone. Once the car has started, Bringrr searches for the cell phone to confirm that it is in the car. If the phone is found, Bringrr sends out a short, reassuring auditory confirmation and its light turns blue. If the cell phone isn’t detected, Bringrr sends out an auditory warning and its light turns red.
“Everyone knows how incredibly frustrating it can be to leave home on a busy day without your cell phone,” said New Hampshire Division of Economic Development Interim Director Roy Duddy. “That’s why a product like Bringrr is particularly noteworthy and important to everyday living. While in the past, you could drive 20 or 30 miles before realizing that you’ve forgotten your phone, now you can resolve that issue before you even leave the driveway.”
