The 10 best home projects on Kickstarter now

WigWag, An "If This Then That" For Connected Devices, Gets Funded On Kickstarter With 30 Days To Go

July 17th - via: androidpolice.com
For the desktop/web power user, the If This, Then That (IFFT) service is invaluable - it powers more than a few behind-the-scenes processes here at Android Police, for example. So it's easy to see why taking that idea into the physical world has got a lot of people excited. They've responded by funding the WigWag Kickstarter project, a combination device/service that talks to and controls some of the more common home automation gadgets through a central hardware hub. The project's $50,000 goal has been smashed in less than half its two-month run time - it's currently sitting at over $130,000. (Read More)

WigWag, launched 2 hours ago on Kickstarter (31% funded with $15,915 raised out of $50,000), looks like a promising new approach to sensors in the home, offering up an “IFTTT”-like interface for wiring things together (i.e. a simple to use web interface to create basic ”When” [this] happens “Then” do [that] type action / response patterns.)
