Twine ~ ML Alum Cloudable Node on Kickstarter!

Excellent to see MIT Media Lab alum Supermechanical inventor-entrepreneurs David Carr and John Kestner's new Twine on Kickstarter!
"Twine is the simplest possible way to get the objects in your life texting, tweeting or emailing. [...] Twine lets you create Internet-connected systems and objects anywhere you have WiFi. Compact, low-power hardware and real-time web software work together to make networked physical computing simple and versatile. [...] Twine is a wireless module tightly integrated with a cloud-based service. The module has WiFi, on-board temperature and vibration sensors, and an expansion connector for other sensors. Power is supplied by the on-board mini USB or two AAA batteries (and Twine will email you when you need to change the batteries). The Spool web app makes it simple to set up and monitor your Twines from a browser anywhere. You set rules to trigger messages -- no programming needed. The rules are put together with a palette of available conditions and actions, and read like English."
Back them!
