Connect Any Thing to the Cloud. Meet Twine! - Page 2
Here are some more. Say you have an an event that you need to be apprised of. For example, if the accelerometer is knocked after 7PM, the web app will text or email the phrase, “Someone’s at the door. It’s (time).” (Meaning it will return the actual timestamp the event happened.) The sensors can used independently or in sync, accommodating the various possibilities you think might occur..
David Carr and John Kestner and their team are also developing an external moisture sensor and magnetic switch. And you could get mad crazy with this gizmo. You could apply all four elements together, creating an alert designating to the second that the Twine unit, atop a melting block of ice has fallen. Not only would you be able to gauge the seconds, minutes and hours the ice block melted, get this, you would be able to record the distance of the traveling water with the moisture sensor. Indeed the possibilities are as limitless as one's brain power to think of creative ways to use the device.
Want to buy one now, this minute? Well, you can't. Twine is pre-production, but the Kickstarter project is completely funded. When it comes out, your wallet will be happy. Reports state Twine probably will retail for $99, but without the extra sensors. But do you really need to measure the distance of the traveling water from a melting block of ice? You never know!
