Put it everywhere
BlueBee is easily attached to the things you want to protect like your keys, your car, your bag, your pets or anything else you want to keep safe.
A revolutionary system
BlueBee is based on the Blue Crowd Search technology. This is a completely new way of thinking geolocalisation. This system taps the power of the crowd to find your lost objects, which makes it possible to build very small, affordable and power-efficient tracking devices.
With "BlueCrowdSearch" you can find your things with the help of other BlueBee users. Wherever your lost valuables are, it can be automatically detected by the smartphone of another BlueBee user passing by, and it will notify you with the exact location. Of course, everything is automatic; other users don’t even know their devices are looking for your stuff!
And in order to make the Blue Crowd network even stronger we are already discussing partnerships with some of the big mobile app development companies to integrate our API into their apps. This will bring thousands of users into the Blue Crowd network from the very beginning making it ready to roll.
Become a premium user
The Blue Crowd Search network enables long range localisation. It is the perfect solution to find a lost wallet, a stolen car or a missing pet. In order to cover our service maintenance costs, users will be invited to buy an annual subscription (starting at 15 euros/year) ... HOWEVER ...
We have decided that every Indiegogo contributor will be offered a FREE golden membership which provides a LIFE PASS to the Blue Crowd Search network.
Indeed we believe that as an Indiegogo contributor not only are you helping to create the initial core of the Blue Crowd Search user network, but you also believe in this project as much as we do and this really matters to us. Early adopters should never have to pay for the Blue Crowd Search service.
Uncluttered and effective
The BlueBee app helps you finding your things quickly and easily. It was designed with passion to be powerful and intuitive, and its polished interface will make your user experience even more appealing.
There are 5 great features in the app:

2) Reminder: you can be warned when you get too far from your BlueBee
3) Smart Zone : save some safe places like your home and your office to be warned if and only if your valuables leave these Smart Zones.
4) Bee Buzz: in a 50 meters range you can see on the radar how far you are from your BlueBee and make it ring to find it quickly
5) Remote shutter: this is a fun bonus feature :) you can use the BlueBee mini-tape button to remotely shut your smartphone camera and take neat group pictures

Who are we?
We're focused on developing a new generation of wireless objects and smartphone accessories: things that will make people's lives easier. We also believe that technology can completely change the way we interact with our environment and with other people. After realizing two years ago how powerful the cooperation between thousands of people willing to help each other can be, we decided to start X6 Innovations and its first project: BlueBee.
By reaching Indiegogo we are willing to prove a genuine interest in this product, and design something really amazing and user-centered, based on the feedback of the early adopters. Each Indiegogo supporter makes our BlueCrowdSearch network grow larger and stronger, helping all of its members. We also wanted to make this technology affordable for everybody, and the only way to do that is to have a high initial production volume, which can be achieved with help of Indiegogo users.
Use of funds?
We've built our prototypes. We’ve figured out our supply chain. We need your help to take the next step. We’re looking for funds to put BlueBee into production. We have the best French electronics and computer science engineers by our side, many of whom have led development and manufacturing of several hardware products for companies and research labs. All we need now is your support.
With your help BlueBee and the first pocket Lost-and-Found system will become a reality.
