Last year a couple of MIT Media Lab graduates raised over half a million dollars on Kickstarter to create their ingenious product called Twine.
Twine is a wireless square that is capable of allowing any object to connect to the internet. That’s right, ANY object. Want to get a tweet when your laundry is done? Want to get an email if the basement floods while you’re on vacation? Want to get a text message if you left the door unlocked? Twine is a simple way to get the objects in your life texting, tweeting, or emailing. And the best part? No programming knowledge is required.
If you want to get into the nerdy details of just how Twine works, check out their Kickstarter page. We’re here just to tell you that this chunk of internet awesomeness is now available for purchase here.
