UC Technology Corp in Japan has developed a small gadget that can calculate atmospheric information such as temperature, humidity, daylight and radiation levels in its surrounding. Furthermore, the Tsubuyaku Sensor posts the data automatically on Twitter and can be viewed and shared instantly.
The wireless device has built-in sensors and is able to tweet once every minute and users can check the information remotely on the social media site. The connection range is around 40 meters but can be extended to 60 meters if plugged into a wall socket to collate data further away. The Tsubuyaku Sensor can run for a year on three AA batteries.
Prices start from $560 US for the base unit and $286 US for each sensor. The device is ideal for food warehouses, plants and wine cellars where atmospheric conditions need to be accurately monitored and maintained.
