Help fund Findables and make sure your iPad/iPhone get found thanks to cases with built-in QR codes!

I've written about Findables before, here: http://www.iphonelife.com/blog/2458/be-found-qr-coded-cases-findables but it's crunch time!  Their Indiegogo crowd supported project has 63 hours left and is not yet completely funded.

What's so cool about Findables?  They make cases that, on their own are pretty cool thanks to glow-in-the dark material (which makes them Findable at night!) but more importantly, each case has a unique QR code embedded in it.  A good samaritan can scan your lost iPhone or iPad and know how to return the item.

You can also use it as a high tech business card.  Let someone scan your case using a QR code reader to see your info.  And the info page is an easily customized, elegant mini website.

They even offer a futuristic metal business card with just your name and QR code on it.  I sponsored that item, at a cost of $50.

Findables wins the prize for the first iPhone 5 case to reach me!  They didn't waste any time.  I got my phone on Friday and the case arrived Monday!  Unlike a lot of Kickstarter-style projects, these guys are operational and able to ship real products so it's not the gamble that most crowd sourced projects tend to be.
