It started years ago when Turner was on vacation with friends. “People were losing things everywhere,” the actor explains. “They were getting frustrated and walking around the house like headless chickens! It was kind of ridiculously funny, but at the same time, it was frustrating.” That frustration led Turner and two friends to co-found a new company with the idea to finally a device that would ensure nothing is ever lost again. “I literally would lose my head if it wasn’t screwed on,” he laughs. “Now I finally have something myself that I’m not going to be leaving anything behind any more!”

Flash forward six years and two prototypes and we’ve got Ty, a rechargeable Bluetooth enabled disc that’s smaller than a poker chip, can be attached to anything and ensures that nothing is ever lost again. The idea is simple. “9.9 times out of 10,” says Turner, “if you’re reminded within two minutes of leaving something behind, you wouldn’t lose it because you can go back exactly where you were and it would be there.”

“You put the app on the phone, it connects to the Ty like a Bluetooth headset and then when you walk away a certain distance from what it is you don’t want to lose, the phone goes off,” Turner explains. And for those who don’t heed the warning? They’ve got that taken care of too, with a GPS signal that can be tracked by yourself, any good Samaritan in the Ty community or the company itself to pick up and send back to you.

But now Turner needs your help. In order to start manufacturing, the company needs an initial order of 10,000 Tys and the funding to complete it. To accomplish the goal, Turner and his partners have turned to crowdfunding site, Indiegogo, hoping to raise $200,000 by November 13 — in time to ensure that anyone who contributes will receive their own Tys just before Christmas!
