Lost your glasses again? Still searching for the television remote control?

Sharper Image Design created "Now You Can Find It" to locate just those kinds of items -- keys, cell phone, even a book. Attach one of the four radio frequency receiver discs to anything that tends to disappear.

Carry the battery-operated transmitter base from room to room to "page" a lost item. Press the corresponding button, and it will beep loudly within 30 feet of the missing object.

Don't worry about misplacing the base. Leave it off the magnetic mount for more than six minutes and it, too, starts to beep.

Available at Sharper Image for $49.95 in Old Hyde Park Village or International Plaza.
