Now that's a really cool handy gadget. Been ages since anyone came up with anything worth giving a thought to.
Good luck guys, hope this works as you anticipated.

nice idea, and a thousand better uses than when the microwave has finished (they beep when they are finished). Sensors for pill boxes opening, baths overfilling, beds being slept in, all these services are currently available from various alarm call providers, but being able to set them up yourself in the early stages of need might be great.

meh, seems overhyped if you think realistically what this can actually do.

Not to mention the sensors will be too broad and may be tripped by other sounds/movements etc.

What would be 'nice' is if manufactures though about having a standard where

a) real sensors would be already in built, ready for an addon device to connect to the sensors and broadcast wireless

b) modern devices will have a cheapo wireless box attached.

I imagine the linear thinker will find little use for these other than given examples.

I was looking into this a few days ago. I love the idea of this little box. I would right all sorts of things in my place to use different sensors. My only recommendation would be to make an alternative model that has a more discrete look. Simple white box. Something easy to hide.

Besides that I plan on seeing this in the future and picking up one or two myself.

Great idea. I'd put one on my boat.
One of my neighbors just had his sink at the dock. I bet that little box sending an SMS to a cell phone could have prevented this expensive disaster !

With an apple logo too, I suppose? What's the point. It's like a router, it just goes on a desk or in a cabinet somewhere. (And white boxes are ugly)
