Minneapolis, MN (I-Newswire) November 13, 2012 - FinderCodes LLC ( today announces that its patent-pending, electronic lost and found system for consumers has been named an International CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for Personal Electronics. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 29 product categories.

The FinderCodes system combines the use of smart phones, QR codes and apps to fill the everyday need of recovering valuable lost items.

The AT&T®-branded FinderCodes kits substantially improve the chances of owners reconnecting with lost items by helping Good Samaritans instantly contact them, simply and safely. FinderCodes kits, available in seven different product lines, blend scannable QR codes, smartphones, the Internet and durable identification tags to enable a quick, secure and hassle-free return of lost valuables-including pets, electronics, luggage and more.

Users create an account with FinderCodes that includes contact information for returning lost items. After purchasing and registering the tags using a smartphone or computer, users attach the durable tags to basically any item that could be lost. Popular items include mobile phones, luggage, clothing and children's products.

"We created FinderCodes as a simple solution to solve a common problem of losing important belongings. Being honored by CES Innovations in the Personal Electronics category confirms our product is a leader in the space," said John Valiton, CEO of FinderCodes. "By combining QR codes, a proliferated but underutilized technology, and durable identification tags, our user-friendly system makes getting your lost items back, or being a Good Samaritan, easier than ever."

The Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.
The FinderCodes system will be displayed in The Venetian at the 2013 International CES, which runs January 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas.

The Innovations entries are judged based on the following criteria:
• Engineering qualities, based on technical specs and materials used
• Aesthetic and design qualities, using photos provided
• The product's intended use/function and user value
• Unique/novel features that consumers would find attractive
• How the design and innovation of the product compares to other products in the marketplace
