Writing instrument manufacturer A.T. Cross, in partnership with California-based startup TrackR, will soon debut a pen whose location can be tracked via Bluetooth and an accompanying mobile app.

Dubbed as the world's first trackable ink pen, the Peerless TrackR Carbon Black Ballpoint Pen is equipped with a tracking device that allows users to monitor the location of the pen through an Android- and iOS-compatible app.

The pen can be paired with the mobile app over Bluetooth with a transmission distance of 100m. Users will also receive alerts once the pen is out of range.

In the case of a lost pen, the TrackR app will show on a map the missing item's last known location through Crowd Locate. This feature is basically a community of people who use the TrackR app, and if one of these people is near or comes across the pen, the location is automatically pinned on the map, and the user receives a private notification.

Since the pen is paired with the mobile phone, users can also use it to locate the missing or a misplaced phone via a built-in button. Once activated, an alarm will sound from the phone, even if it is in silent mode.

The Peerless TrackR pen is powered by two CR1220 batteries and is available in carbon black and quartz blue.
