Have you experienced panic attacks due to a wayward and unfindable car key? Toyota’s parts arm Denso is here to help, for a 3,980 Yen ($41) fee. That’s the JDM cost of Denso’s key finder, a small receiver with a buzzer and a LED light that can be wirelessly activated by a smartphone via Bluetooth.

The key finder can currently be used only with iPhone 5, 4S, iPad 5th gen and iPod touch, an Android app is in the works. But what if you can’t find your phone? Then key finder goes both ways: It can make your phone buzz.  The key finder will go on sale in Japan by 22nd April, The Nikkei says.
