Want to know the time when your teenager gets home at night without actually waiting up? Want to shoot a text message to your spouse every day as you leave the office?

All of this and more could be easily done with the bttn, from The Button Corporation. The bttn is a simple device reminiscent of Staples’ “Easy Button,” only this one has real Internet functionality. Users can program the button to execute one set of commands via an internet connection. A statement from the company explained its functionality: “The bttn communicates with bttn servers, which then trigger the pre-set action. Technically, actions are counter updates, web page updates, twitter tweets, RSS feeds, IFTTT triggers, email, SMS messaging, or any combination thereof. Bttn’s multiple patent-pending system offers a wide variety of ready-made drag-and-drop actions, as well as wizards for simply and quickly defining new actions.”
