The bluetooth tracker outranks other similar devices because MYNT can so quickly become an essential, and goes beyond a simple tracker’s duties. For example, MYNT can be assigned three other functions via the user-friendly app, making the device more of an attentive helper rather than just an alarm for your keys. The device allows access to other controls, such as speaker systems or your phone’s camera, even Keynote presentations. In this way, MYNT achieves its true function: to save you time, and more meaningfully connect you to the world around you. </p> <p>MYNT’s tracker functions though should not be discounted. When separated from your tagged items, the MYNT app alerts you of their locations promptly, and works bidirectionally if you lose your phone. The device can easily be attached using the given adhesive pads or string. Along with its uniquely sleek and thin design (about two quarters thick), MYNT blends into your daily routine and saves you the frenzy of trying to find your valuable belongings or even children. The tracker is a smart companion–– it compliments your lifestyle and provides a no-fuss experience. The device treats your time and possessions as you do–– with care. </p> <p>With MYNT, you enter a community of people who actively value their lives. If you report something lost on the app, there’s an entire network of people that can help you find any MYNT tracker within 150 feet. And that’s what makes MYNT so effective and essential: it connects you to the things that matter most. Whether it’s your wallet or your community, MYNT keeps you close. </p> 1970-01-01 00:00:00 www.slightech.com//news/companion.html www.slightech.com//news/companion.html MYNT Tracker Market Undergoing Transition <!-- author: Slightech head: http://www.slightech.com/ico/favicon.png date: 2016-06-25 title: Tracker Market Undergoing Transition tags: MYNT, design category: MYNT status: publish language: en summary: According to ABI Research conducted in 2014 concerning personal location devices and applications, the GPS personal tracking market is projected to break $3.5 billion by 2019.

In 2017, the market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 40%, and break $1 billion as well. According to this report, the most devices grow mainly within elderly, health, and lone worker markets. However, the report concludes that other interests such as pets, children, and personal assets garner interest and investment as well. </p> <p>Yet, in a recent interview this past May 2016, Patrick Connolly of ABI Research announced an updated report claiming that the market for personal tracking devices are undergoing a significant transition period, and many companies are experiencing difficulties in finding mass-market adoption. According to this new report, the devices are put at about $2 billion by 2021. While Connolly believes there is huge opportunity within the market, he states that correct distribution, pricing, and legislation has not been decided upon for mass adoption. Many fear that companies will then lower prices to drive market share, since the market remains low volume-high margin.</p> <p>According to another report, the Internet of Things (IoT) chip market is estimated to grow from $4.58 billion in 2015 to $10.78 billion by 2022. Growing interest in connected devices is apparent. The addressable market for MYNT is growing, and by 2020, there is expected to be over 34 billion connected devices. The market seems to have broad opportunity for emerging technologies and companies, yet there are two main competitors for Sightech within the personal tracker market. </p> <h3 id="Trackr">Trackr</h3> <p>In 2014, TrackR was named #155 on the Inc. 500 List of Fastest Growing Companies in the US, and again was featured on the list after launching Wallet, sticker, and Bravo products with 2,541% growth and a total revenue of $2.7 million in 2014.</p> <p>This past May, Amazon announced it is ready to invest between $250,000 - $500,000 in Trackr, the bluetooth tracking device and MYNT’s main competitor. Amazon plans to enhance the capabilities of its cloud-based home system Alexa, which controls other home devices such as the Amazon Echo. The Trackr Bravo, a coin-sized chip that claims to be the thinnest tracking device, works similarly as MYNT, in that it alerts a user’s app of tagged items’ location. It is priced at 29.99 USD. The device would most likely gain voice capability, and the partnership with Amazon would be advantageous for both companies. In 2015, the company raised almost $8 million to expand.</p> <h3 id="Tile">Tile</h3> <p>Tile tracker and app are priced at 25 USD, according to their website. The CEO often refers to his product as the “poor man’s GPS,” and encourages the networking/social impact of the Tile–– the more that people download the Tile app, the more people can locate lost items as one giant search party. Additionally, the Tile is attractive to many enterprises in that it does not store or transmit any personal data. In 2014, the company pushed to for Android support. According to the company, the Tile is tracking people in over 200 countries.</p> <p>According to reports this June, Tile has further raised $18 million with Bessemer Venture Partners, with participation from existing investors GGV Capital, Khosla Ventures, Tandem, and Chinese tech giant Tencent. The bluetooth smart tracker raised $13 million in 2014 and $2.6 million in crowd funding. According to the CEO of Tile, the product will be receiving new designs soon, and the company plans to gain more exposure with third-party retail outlets. Similarly, Tile will open its smart technology platform to other companies so they can “embed their own wares.” </p> <ul> <li>Personal Tracking To Be The Next Billion Dollar GPS Market&quot;. Abiresearch.com.

It’s a lot like Tile, but it’s smaller and packs a few extra features.</p> <p>The main purpose of MYNT is to keep track of your keys, wallet or purse. Walk too far away from the tracker and your phone will let you know. It also works the other way, helping you find your phone by turning on a noisy alarm when you hold down the tracker’s single button.</p> <p>You can also use MYNT to control the music on your phone, snap photos or control a power point presentation by clicking the device’s single button in a variety of ways. Using an app on your smartphone, you can assign a different function for a single press, two quick presses or three. Unfortunately that means you can only get access to three functions at any given time.</p> <p>The app, which is available for Android and iOS, is easy to set up. The regular interface can feel a little complicated, though it’s possible that could improve before the device actually launches. MYNT also plans to offer an open SDK, so that third-party apps can be controlled as well.</p> <p>MYNT is just 3.5mm thick and features a sleek anodized metal design. It looks great and feels extremely light. It definitely didn’t add any noticeable weight to my keychain.</p> <p><strong>Source: Technobuffalo</strong></p> 1970-01-01 00:00:00 www.slightech.com//news/mynt_tile.html www.slightech.com//news/mynt_tile.html MYNT MYNT is a Bluetooth tracking tag that also functions as a remote control <!-- author: Slightech head: http://www.slightech.com/ico/favicon.png date: 2016-06-06 title: MYNT is a Bluetooth tracking tag that also functions as a remote control tags: MYNT, remote control category: MYNT status: publish language: en summary: Bluetooth trackers are pretty common these days, with various devices cropping up to help you locate phones, keys, bags and even umbrellas .

These tags tend to be pretty simple: just stick them on your device and then use a phone app to work out where you lastmyn left the blasted thing.</p> <p><img src="https://static.slightech.com/img/news/mynt_on_sea.png" alt="MYNT" /></p> <p>But Mynt, which is currently at the IndieGoGo stage of existence, wants to push the limits a little, creating a product that's not only super-thin, but also has a button that lets it act like a remote control for certain functions. The product, which is being developed by Slightech out of San Jose, measures 1 by 2.2 by 0.14 inches (25 by 55 by 3.5mm). The crowd-funding campaign page says that's about the same thickness as two quarters -- a very helpful metric if you're American. Everyone else can just picture what 3.5mm looks like.</p> <p>It has a sturdy stainless steel case and is IP43 rated, which means you can splash it without it going kaput. It'll be offered in silver, black, gold and yellow. It runs on Bluetooth 4.0 LE, which gives it an effective range of around 50 metres (150 feet).</p> <p><img src="https://static.slightech.com/img/news/mynt_and_tile.png" alt="MYNY And Tile" /></p> <p>In addition to standard Bluetooth tracking tag functions, Mynt also features a replaceable battery unlike its rival tag Tile. The other key differentiator is the button, which lets Mynt use the Bluetooth connection to act as a remote control. Some of the suggested functions are for changing PowerPoint slides, music controls or even as a remote control for your phone camera, hopefully eliminating the need for a selfie stick.</p> <p>Much like Tile, Mynt will let you locate misplaced or stolen items by marking them as lost. If the signal gets picked up by any Mynt users, you'll get a notification of that location.</p> <p><strong>Source: CNET.COM</strong></p> 1970-01-01 00:00:00 www.slightech.com//news/mynt_track.html www.slightech.com//news/mynt_track.html MYNT MYNT小觅智能防丢器荣获2016年德国红点产品设计奖 <!-- author: Slightech head: http://www.slightech.com/ico/favicon.png date: 2016-06-05 title: MYNT小觅智能防丢器荣获2016年德国红点产品设计奖 tags: 智能防丢, 红点奖 category: 小觅智能防丢器 status: publish language: cn summary: 继在全球各大众筹平台获得佳绩,并持续位列太火鸟(taihuoniao.com) TOP100智能硬件评选第1名后,硅谷智能科技公司Slightech, Inc.的智能防丢器小觅又赢得了国际工业设计“奥斯卡”——德国“红点奖”2016产品设计奖 --> <p><img src="https://static.slightech.com/img/news/mynt_reddot.png" alt="小觅荣获红点设计奖" /></p> <p>继在全球各大众筹平台获得佳绩,并持续位列太火鸟(taihuoniao.com) TOP100智能硬件评选第1名后,硅谷智能科技公司Slightech, Inc.的智能防丢器小觅又赢得了国际工业设计“奥斯卡”——德国“红点奖”2016产品设计奖(Reddot Award:Product Design 2016)。</p> <p>小觅又名MYNT,极致轻薄,功能强大。它源于硅谷,仅3.5mm厚,2个硬币大,全身精钢打造,采用智能天线技术与同iPhone相同的后壳处理工艺。拥有双向防丢寻物,智能提醒,物件定位等功能,并能遥控自拍,智能切歌,控制PPT翻页。美国科学院,工程学院,人文学院三重院士,伯克利大学教授Eli Yablonovitch评价道:“小觅的工业设计太令我惊讶了!我曾告诉他们不要用金属作为外壳,不然天线将是巨大的挑战,但当我拿到小觅的实物后,我被震惊了,超级薄,质感非常好,最重要的是,天线非常完美!”</p> <p>德国红点奖创始人、评委会主席彼得·扎克博士(Dr. Peter Zec)在获奖贺信中表示,“MYNT小觅智能防丢器凭借卓越的工业设计,在激烈的角逐中脱颖而出。” 在贺信中,彼得·扎克博士也介绍到今年的红点产品设计奖,一共有来自57个国家的5214件产品参与了角逐,并经过了41名专业评委的严格评审。 </p> <p><img src="https://static.slightech.com/img/news/reddot_page.png" alt="红点奖文书" /></p> <p>此前,小觅在全球众筹创造佳绩时,国外知名数码媒体Gadget Flow就对小觅赞誉有加:“小觅是数码时代的瑞士军刀。” 根据使用场景及产品特点进行设计和反复论证,使得小觅不仅有出色的外观,在功能上也强大和全面,这是小觅此次获奖的重要原因之一。</p> <p>小觅之父,Slightech, Inc. 创始人庞琳勇先生(庞琳勇,Leo,硅谷创业家,企业家,资深职业经理人。系美国斯坦福大学机械工程博士和计算机硕士双学位,拥有14年硅谷创业,NASDAQ上市,和公司行政管理经验)在公开采访中曾表示:“考虑到消费者日常的种种生活场景,我们也赋予了MYNT更大的实用性,除了在不同防丢场景中的出色表现,它还可以操控自拍、音乐播放和幻灯片播映,并且支持iOS、Android、Mac OS、Windows和全球几乎所有的主流第三方拍照&amp;音乐App。小觅的设计初衷是希望能够简化人们的生活,我们希望它能把生活中一些不能联网的设备连接起来,把环境、物品和需求统一起来,成为我们开启智能生活的桥梁。” </p> <p>小觅获得红点奖是一个好的开端,未来,专注于智能穿戴式设备及智能家居产品的硅谷智能科技公司Slightech, Inc.
