If This Then That

Simon is spending his days learning to go about with his birthday presents – the new LittleBits modules. The CloudBit is probably one of his most important assets now, allowing him to control his circuits long distance (via the internet):

He can even program the CloudBit to send him (well, me actually) a text message if the module is triggered (every time Simon presses a button, for instance). We have also tried it the other way around – the CloudBit triggered the circuit every time we texted a certain number in the US. This type of programming is called “writing a recipe” and can be done via a website called If This Then That (IFTT) at https://ifttt.com/recipes
