If you have even the mildest kind of anxiety issues, you know what its like to worry. I cant say I’ve actually ruined a vacation, or extended trip away from home, but I can say that I have worried about the house flooding or freezing or even the fridge breaking down (and yes, that happened once, hence my discomfort now.) Wouldn’t it be nice if the stuff at home could talk to you?
Now it can, Twine is a wireless device thats used with a cloud-based service. The unit includes WiFi, as well as temperature and vibration sensors, and it also has an expansion slot for other kinds of sensors. Twine is powered by the on-board micro USB or two AAA batteries. So Twine can not only warn you of an emergency, but it can tell you that your laundry is done, grandma is awake, or that you left the garage door open! So go ahead, let the stuff in your house text, tweet or e-mail!
