A 2.7-inch, rubber-covered square, Twine contains temperature, vibration, and orientation sensors and connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi. An associated Web app lets you configure the device to trigger a message via email, text, or Twitter when a certain condition is met.
The Twine makes numerous office scenarios possible. For instance, you might put the device on top of your midday meal in the company refrigerator—and from there it can send you an alert if a mooch tries to bag your lunch.
You can also add external sensors to Twine—for example, a magnetic switch that you attach to your office door or file cabinet so you'll know if someone trips it. The potential applications are limited only by the bounds of your paranoia and misanthropy. Dwight Schrute would have sold his soul for a few dozen of these babies.
