If you’re headed away this summer, leave the Knut behind to keep and eye on things. This small, Wi-Fi-capable widget can transmit various measurements to your iPhone anywhere in the world.
The Knut is a Kickstarter project by Richard Pasek and Jay Gondelman in Boston. They’re looking for $80 per Knut and it has various sensors built in as well as functional sensors for various other measurements.
They’ve surpassed their $25,000 goal so these things will definitely ship. The real questions is how people will use this to monitor their basements, humidors, and elephant paddocks.
