Connect your things to the Internet, without a nerd degree.

Want to monitor something remotely? Maybe you want to get a tweet when your house is too hot or cold, or get an email when the basement floods while you're on vacation.

Twine is the simplest way to get your home and objects texting, tweeting or emailing. A rubber-sheathed 2.7" square contains Wi-Fi connectivity, internal and external sensors, and two AAA batteries that will last for two months. (A Micro USB port for external power is also provided.) 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.
