That looks pretty cool.

Nice concept, thanks for sharing!

Is this device based on the same protocol as XBee - 802.15.4? (found that it is)

I like that that it is “plug and play” - as far as you send to an address, and it figures out how to get it there.

While it has more to offer as an XBee, the pricing isn’t very aggressive. It looks to start off at $22/piece.
