Hello Backers,

We have good news and more good news for you.

Shipping Update:

The whole team worked hard (because we love our Kickstarter backers so much) to ship out all the Twines we had the information for in December, but we still have some lonely Twines to mail. If you haven’t gotten your Twine yet, we probably need you to confirm your shipping information or pay for international shipping. Check your account at or email us at for the fastest response (we love Kickstarter comments, but we don’t want everyone to see your personal information).

Twine Update:
It’s been a great week for Twine! It's been reading self-improvement books and now it's got some new features to show you. Here’s what’s included in the Twine 1.2 update:

1. Vibration sensor functionality.
2. Several small reductions in power consumption.
3. Celsius temperature readings, for all our international friends.
4. UI improvements, including Wi-Fi signal and battery life bars and an improved fast mode switch.

To get the update, resave the rules on your Twine. For more information on what's new, check out our blog: Update 1.2

If you’re looking to expand your Twine’s repertoire, you can get 10’ cables and additional sensors in our store.

Looking for ideas on how to use your Twine? Check out our how-tos, and mingle with the Twine community (Where all the cool kids are hanging out these days — you should be there too.)

      Glad it will actually do part of what I ordered it for. Now if only the battery life were what we were told to expect. May I suggest that, since the sleeve serves no real function, you replace it on the next iteration with something that can be easily opened/ removed for the frequent battery changes?

      This is actually something I have been wanting to use this device for.
