Findables is a startup company that is looking to sell mobile phone cases that would serve as more than just protection for your phones. On the back of the cases is a QR code that could turn your mobile phone into different things.
It can be your business card. Alternatively, it can help you retrieve a lost phone. Or it could serve as your resume.
Findables allow you to have a personal profile and a business profile. So, for example, if you are attending at seminar for work, you can have the QR code resolve to your business profile hat would have a link to your LinkedIn profile, portfolio and other business-related stuff you want to share.
On the other hand, when in a social setting, you can direct people to your Facebook account or any other social network that you have.
A Findables profile allows a user to link their social media accounts to a single profile, making it easier to share your social footprint with people you just meet. That means that you do not have to carry all those business cards with you, you just let them scan your phone case.
If you lose your phone, you can also use Findables’ lost and found service. This way, if you lose your phone, you can log on to Findables and offer a reward for your lost items.
Their first product is an iPhone case. Even if you forget about the QR code for a minute, you would still be drawn in by the beauty and simplicity of the iPhone case. The case is made of polycarbonate that helps repel dirt, lint and dust keeping your device clean and looking new. It has a two-piece design that allows you to mix casing colors and also easily access docks and ports. The casing also has appropriate holes for the power button, camera lens, flash and other physical buttons on the phone. What’s more, it comes in a variety of colors and even with glow-in-the-dark options!
If you do not have an iPhone or any of the devices that they support, you can still get the Findables QR code from a dog tag or even, ironically, a business card.
