Searching for everyday objects are a frequent activity for most people. Misplaced keys, mobiles and other devices are a source of annoyance, and even more so, if people are affected by memory problems. Searching for objects is a frustrating activity, especially if this is a frequently recurring phenomenon. There are several existing techniques for retrieving objects, but many of them do not use the available technology to the full extent, providing solutions that are almost "good-enough" but not necessarily useable practice.
In this paper we present a solution that is intense to be more than good-enough, and simultaneously argue that there is a need for solutions that don't only facilitate a good life for people with impairments, but that also does so with the user's emotional experience (UEX?) in focus.
