A wireless square with sensors and a simple web app to set rules, Twine tells you what your things are doing by email, text or Twitter.
3,966 backers pledged $556,541 to help bring this project to life.

Refinement is unglamorous.

Hello, backers — it’s been a while. We’ve been working as hard as ever, but refactoring C functions and moving lines by .005” do not lend themselves to blog posts. We've now got a pile of things to share with you — literally.

Read the whole update at our blog. (We also randomly post tidbits on Facebook and Twitter if you'd like more Supermechanical in your diet.)

We also have some important homework for backers: the Spool site has been updated with your shipping address — please check that it's correct and make any changes there. Many of you haven’t yet signed up — if you didn’t get the registration email (check your spam folder), let us know at with the email address you used for Kickstarter, and we’ll resend your registration link.

      Yes! It'll just take some time.

      Are you planning a web api to allow me to check the state of a sensor from my own code?

      Bradley, it'll be a little while yet. Send us an email describing what you want to do. On our compressed schedule, you might not be able to do complex stuff right away, but we'll be continuously upgrading the software.

      Any idea on when the software interface will enter beta? I'm interested in getting started asap, as my implementation is likely a bit beyond the standard. (complex accelerometer data)

      Sorry! Should've clarified that in the post. 3D printers don't give you much choice of color - these prototypes are just to test fit and feel. The final Twine will still be aqua.

      I also dont like the black color. What about the type of green?

      I was pretty sold on the epoxy green color, is that really gone for black now?
