Ifttt

I just learned about this, and I'm fascinated by the possibilities.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ifttt


Quote:
IFTTT (pronunciation: "ift" as in "gift" short for "If This Then That") is a service that enables users to connect different web applications (e.g., Facebook, Evernote, Weather, Dropbox, etc.) together through simple conditional statements known as "Recipes". IFTTT was developed by Linden Tibbets and launched in 2010.

IFTTT enables users to create and share "Recipes" that fit the statement: "if this then that". The “this” part of a Recipe is called a Trigger. Some example Triggers are “I’m tagged in a photo on Facebook” or “I check in on Foursquare”. The “that” part of a Recipe is called an Action. Some example Actions are “send me a text message” or “create a status message on Facebook”. The combination of a Trigger and an Action from a user's active channels are called Recipes. The service offers Triggers and Actions for 92 channels, such as Twitter, Foursquare, Flickr, and Box. In June 2012, the service entered the Internet of Things space by integrating with Belkin WeMo devices, allowing Recipes to interact with the physical world. By combining IFTTT with other services such as Yahoo! Pipes, one can build elaborate systems that enable easier consumption of content from a variety of sources.
The possibilities here are fascinating.

If the weather calls for rain, then text me to put on my gore-tex.
If gas prices drop below such-and-such, then text me the nearest gas location.
If my SWMBO's phone begins to move towards home, then text the strippers to put their clothes back on.
If I go off-grid, then text my gps coordinates to a specified list of people.
If my phone decelerates from 90 to 0 within thirty feet, then notify first responders.

I'd love to hear what you've done with this technology or awesome ways you think of to use it.

If my credit card is swiped at Taco Bell then have Amazon overnight ship toilet paper to my house.
