Some Engineering Skills Required

OK, I get that you can mount one of these Pinocchio's within minutes, onto say, my refrigerator or my dishwasher.  But you also need to have a very refined set of engineering skills to enable your refrigerator to feed Pinocchio any data.  Say the Milk is empty (need a pressure sensor installed in the door tray) or the temperature is too warm (hopefully the existing thermostat is Pinocchio-compatible) .  Point being, while Pinocchio can be set up and online in minutes, it will not be "seamless" or simple to feed Pinocchio any worthwhile data without additional installation of various sensors. Does the company also offer a line of commonly used thermocouples, weight or vision sensors?

Interesting product. Implementing this connectivity at the microcontroller level definitely opens up possibilities on how to communicate information from inexpensive field devices.  Will be interesting to see what types of applications emerge to use this technology.  Thanks.
