Twine: Listen to your world, talk to the Internet.
Twine is the simplest possible way to get the objects in your life texting, tweeting or emailing. Get an email when the basement floods while you're on vacation, a text when someone's knocking at the front door, or a tweet when your laundry's done. A durable 2.7" square houses Wi-Fi connectivity, internal and external sensors, and two AAA batteries. A simple web app allows to you quickly set up your Twine with human-friendly rules — no programming needed. And if you're more adventurous, you can connect your own sensors and use HTTP to have Twine send data to your own app.

Supermechanical is partnering with Pebble Technology to add Pebble as an output to Twine, the Wi-Fi sensor square that lets anyone set simple rules to connect their world to the Internet — and now, their wrist. Read more.
