    I'm looking for some kind of small Bluetooth device that doesn't do anything but be discoverable. I know these things exist, but I don't know where to get them.
    Basically, I want something small that I can carry with me so my computer will do the auto away stuff. Some people have suggested a bluetooth phone, but I already have a phone, don't want a different one. The best suggestion I've had was that I get a bluetooth earpiece.
    Anyone else have any ideas?

    You can set it up so if a paired item leaves the range, it'll do anything you specify, usually one would use this to make it automatically set away messages.

    I'm not certain exactly how, but I think you need Salling Clicker.
    So does nobody know of the type of device I'm looking for?
