LittleBits New CloudBit Module Lets Anyone Build ‘Internet of Things’ Devices

  • By
The LittleBits CloudBit module.
With LittleBits’ namesake line of small, modular electronics that snap together magnetically, you can make musical synthesizers, light sensors, and simple robots. But, until now, you couldn’t connect your creations to the Internet.

On Wednesday, LittleBits introduced the CloudBit,
a new module that is made up of a small ARM chip, 64MB of RAM, and a
USB Wi-Fi adapter. When you use it with other Littlebits pieces, the
CloudBit lets you make devices you can control over the Web, either with
the company’s own app or the popular service IFTTT. It’s a DIY entry point into the “Internet of things.”

LittleBits is selling its CloudBit as a standalone module for $59, or in a $99 Cloud Starter Bundle
that includes six modules and instructions for five different beginner
projects. The bundle includes devices that will send you a text message when your doorbell rings, remotely feed your pet, or allow you to turn off and on your air conditioning unit using your phone.

The CloudBit and Cloud Starter Bundle are available now at, and will be sold in Radio Shack stores as well.

Finding the right balance between safety and risk is a challenge caregivers of people with dementia continually face, especially when it comes to cooking. It's important to observe if the person can still cook safely. Those in the early stages of dementia may be able to use the stove independently with reminders and safer cooking products. On the other hand, if you notice increased forgetfulness, you'll need to use automatic fire protection strategies and possibly limit access to cooking only when you're in the kitchen. In this section, we'll give you some simple tips on how to maximize cooking safety, including using safer household products and the latest technologies.

No Dial Desk Phone Ash Built-In Volume Adjustable Ringer Hearing Aid by Viking Electronics

IMHO, you can take cover off any phone and remove the wires from the dialing unit.

from Yahoo:
There is a feature that most large home phone companies have called "Dial Lock" The way it works is: you have to put in a pass code to be able to dial information, since it is a pay per use feature, as well as long distance calls. So, you can still make your long distance calls to friends & family by putting in the pass code, and those who don't have the pass code can not. It does have a monthly cost, but I'm sure it would be cheaper then paying for high long distance calls, that someone else is making on your phone. Call your local phone company to see if they have this feature, that sounds like just what you need.
