Its the right time

I think this is the right time for companies like this. 

I've been thinking a lot of the things I could do at home. Burglar alarm, automatic toilet flush (my wife would love that), and I think this kind of products appeal the creativity we all have inside. Like the Arduino, now I see it's the time to ease the learning curve so that people can make up things and not have to go through deep electronics/software courses.

I got a great call from WigWag's CEO after the story was posted. Stay tuned for an update.

Meanwhile you might want to check out this even larger successful Kickstarter campaign he mentioned that uses similar 6LoWPAN technology but is confined to ligting controls:
