This clever little fellow won’t slit your throat like his name suggests, but rather will bring your virtual and real world into one. By attaching sensors to the Ninja Block and using the beautifully design Ninja Cloud software, you can set real actions to occur. Sounds odd, an example will help. Place the motion sensor and micro cam at your front door, set a rule to tweet you when motion is detect and to include a picture, and it’s done. Or set your light to come on whenever you and your mates are playing Xbox Live, or a hall light to come on when your baby cries. With movement, temperature, humidity, motion, distance, sound, and light all detected and more sensors in production, your imagination is the only limit. It works with Facebook, Twitter, DropBox, Google Docs, SMS, Xbox Live and soon Siri. So your whole world could soon be automated without you having to lift a finger, well worth a dollar.
