【这个追踪装置便宜便携还能自拍】

Vincenz Klemt 和 Raj Sark 合作研制了一种硬币大小的追踪器,拥有超长续航能力的电池,有效距离超过五十米。它可以通过蓝牙和特定的app连接到智能手机,然后将它们安置在你的重要物品上,包括钥匙,钱包,甚至宠物。当你找不到这些物品时,可通过手机上的应用程序向追踪器发射信号,它就会发出“哔哔”声提示你物品的所在位置。如果遗失的物品是手机,则可通过追踪器上的按键启动手机应用发出提示音。此外,还可将这个追踪装置放在相机上,通过手机应用控制快门自拍。

They've found their fortune! Friends win £100,000 investment on Dragons' Den for their tracking device for phones, keys and PETS (and it even takes the perfect selfie)

  • Business partners Vincenz Klemt and Raj Sark created Xupo
  • Gadget pairs with smartphone via Bluetooth to track objects
  • It can be used to find lost phones, keys and even pets 
  • Pair asked for £100,000 investment on BBC show Dragons' Den
  • Peter Jones gave them the money despite the product not being unique 

 

Business partners from Glasgow have homed in on a fortune after appearing on BBC show Dragons' Den to seek investment for their tracking device.

Entrepreneurs Vincenz Klemt and Raj Sark won a £100,000 investment from Peter Jones in return for a 30 percent stake in their business after he was impressed with the gadget.

The pair say their product solves the 'age old problem' of searching for your car keys or mobile phone - and can even help find rogue pets who've gone wandering.

The pair demonstrated to the Dragons how their device works by connecting objects like car keys with a mobile phone via Bluetooth so one can be used to find the other if lost

The Lupo (which since their appearance on the show has been rebranded as Xupo) is a coined-shaped object that can be hung on a key-ring or placed inside a bag or wallet and connects to your phone via Bluetooth and a special app.

As they are connected, you can use your key coin to make your phone ring if it's missing, or use the app on your phone to find missing keys.

When pitching to the Dragons on Sunday's show, Vincenz and Raj admitted their idea is not unique - as there are many tracking devices on the market.

But they said it is their software that helps them stand out from the crowd giving their product a long-lasting battery and a range of over 50m.

However, Dragon Sarah Willingham, who made her fortune in the restaurant industry, was not impressed, saying: 'Am I missing something? I just don't get it.

'It says very clearly in your instructions if you want to find your mobile phone, make sure it's not on mute and make sure it's switched on to find it.

'I would just use someone else's mobile and phone it.'

Vincenz and Raj said their target market was young professionals and frequent travellers but said their product would benefit anyone who struggles to keep track of their possessions and doesn't want to get stressed out trying to find them.

The gadget can even be used to take the perfect selfie, as a click of the button can make the camera on a connected mobile take a photo, instead of the subject having to hold the phone at arm's length.

Peter Jones said he was impressed with the software despite the product not being unique and offered the £100,000 investment

They won over Peter Jones who said he liked their product and its profit margin - it sells for £20 but only costs £3.50 to make.

Peter said: 'I like what you have done, I think you have got what it takes and you understand the market really well. The window of opportunity is now and based on that I am going to make you an offer.'

The duo had only wanted to give away an 8 percent stake in their business in return for a £100,000 investment but Peter said he would only part with his cash for 30 percent.

After some consideration, Vincenz and Raj decided to take him up on his offer in order to gain Peter's expertise in the global tech industry and retail contacts.

Deborah Meaden said Peter's backing was a 'game-changer' for the Glaswegian pair's business.
