The Tweeting Kettle – the Twettle!

UK designers Ben Perman and Murat Mutlu have come up with another tweeting appliance, this time a kettle. They have a pretty fun read of how they came up with the idea and although it started off as just a ‘crazy’ idea, the publicity it has generated has actually landed them the funding they need to make it a reality.

They’re pretty smart though and as they’ve noted in a follow-up post, the crux of this project isn’t about tea, a kettle or Twitter, but rather about WiFi module with an API that you can plug into just about anything. And they’re right, networking (active verb) stuff is the future; it’s what we’re all going to expect gadgets to have by default.
