Twine Lets You Exchange Thoughts With Your Gadgets, SuperMechanical!

You've always wanted to have that "perfect" toast, didn't you? Not over-burnt,  not under-burnt, you just want it to pop out at the right time from the toaster. Well, you may find Twine an interesting device that lets you know the perfect time to pop your toast out, among many similar awesome things. Developed by a start-up Supermechanical, this is one modest square device with features that allow you to interact with your gadgets via internet.[​IMG]
Twine is the least complicated way to have your objects text, tweet or email you. With a 2.5"x2.5" size, this square device is equipped with WiFi connectivity, two long running AAA batteries, internal and external sensors. This device requires NO programming. All you need is a web app (The Spool web app) to install Twine, and you can even opt for your own sensors, and with the help of HTTP, have Twine cause data transmission to your own app.

You can get Twine running at any place supporting WiFi. As soon as it's plugged in, the sensors are immediately realized by the web app, and because the sensors transmit data in real time, it becomes a lot simpler to understand and test the device. If your room catches fire, the fire sensor goes off and you shall get an instant text/tweet/email saying, "Your room's on fire." This device is available for $99 for base unit, and $174 for Twine’s full sensor package.
