It's not our proudest moment when we realize we've forgotten our keys. That terrible sinking sensation in the stomach as you fumble in your pockets and work bag, the doomed feeling you just can't shake while you search your car (or the ground around you) in vain. Well, technology is finally getting around to addressing this problem with the CalypsoKey. It's essentially a "key" that sits inside your smartphone. To get inside your house, just tap the phone case against the lock/access point.
Just don't lose your phone, OK?
