Bringrr : Never Lose Track of Your Important Stuff

Bringrr : Never Lose Track of Your Important Stuff

Imagine a perfectly busy Monday ahead of you, you gear up and rush out to meet the challenges head on. Ten miles down the road, you remember that you forgot your phone back home. The drive back to retrieve it can be a test of patience. At times like these, you wish you had some way of keeping tabs on important stuff you need to carry.

Bringrr is a device that solves the problem for those who tend to forget or misplace things. It works on Bluetooth technology and sits in the lighter dock of your car. When you get in the car, it lets you know if you are leaving behind anything important. BringTags are stick-on LE tags that can be put on wallet, backpack, laptop or even your cat. Pair the phone with Bringrr and next time you forget any item, it lets you know.

The device can be configured through the app to remind you of certain devices on select days. With BringTag on, finding those misplaced keys is no more going to be tedious like before.

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
