Finding Lost Keys with Google?

Will we one day be able to find our car keys by looking them up on Google? Author Brue Sterling thinks so in this talk given at the 2006 O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference. More details from IT Conversations:
In the future we may be able to find lost keys with a simple google search. Science fiction writer Bruce Sterling imagines how physical objects will be part of the internet as they become trackable in space and time. Bruce discusses the theoretical and technical challenges that we face as we try and think about and develop the Internet of Things.
Much of the talk deals with the concept of using verbal framing devices to manifest an idea. Bruce introduces us to the idea of a spime, objects that are trackable in space and time. Spimes are material instantiations of an immaterial system, digitally manufactured things from virtual plans.
