Could Tesla's new initiative help you find your keys?

There's nothing more frustrating than misplacing your car keys. Telsa might be able to help with that.

The company recently received approval from the Federal Communications Commission's office of engineering and technology to patent a new key fob for its electric cars, The Verge reports.

Tesla did not immediately respond to requests for comment from CNBC.
