Wireless Gadget Tweets Weather & Radiation Data In Real-Time
Sensor device sends atmospheric data conditions to Twitter.
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.
