The popular, Bluetooth-connected lost item finder Tile is today introducing a new product dubbed “Tile Slim” that’s designed to be kept in your wallet, so you can find it if it ever goes missing. The device – which the company claims is the world’s thinnest Bluetooth tracker – finally makes it possible to use Tile with not only your wallet without the bulk, but also with other thin items you want to track, like computers, tablets, passports, and more. Tile also announced an expansion into the enterprise with its first B2B offering, the Tile Smart Location Platform, which allows other companies to embed Tile’s location technology into their own products.

The company got its start on Kickstarter and now reportedly has users in over 200 countries and is locating over half a million items every day. The Tile Slim can attach to nearly anything, and should you be out of bluetooth range of your lost item, Tile will tap into it’s community of users to track it. Perhaps technology, in the form of connecting all of our valuables, will be the cure for forgetfulness.
