Smart homes, smart cars, and of course, smartphones happen to play a more and more important role in our lives, especially when it comes to the smartphone industry. Why do we say so? Well, if you were to leave your home without your smartphone, it would be somewhat akin to doing so without remembering to bring your wallet along. You simply cannot leave without it, so here is yet another smart device that will go a long way in helping you gain control of your handset, your apps, and ultimately, your life. The Stone from Pebblebee – where it has been deemed to be a smart button that can be stuck to just about any surface or worn necklace style.
With the Pebblebee Stone, you will be able to program shortcuts to everyday tasks via an easy-to-use app. Once that is done, all that you need to do is to press the button on the Stone in order to trigger those tasks. Using the Stone, you are but just a single click away from doing just about anything, where you are able to use it to control your music, text your friends, find your phone, and snap selfies, among other stuff.
The Stone will integrate itself directly with IFTTT, which happens to be the world’s easiest method to connect your favorite apps and smart devices. You can then make use of the Stone to trigger tons of useful IFTTT recipes (which can be found over at IFTTT.com), or opt to come up with your own and share them with the Stone community if you feel that you have the right kind of creative juices.
Just in case you were wondering what IFTTT is all about, it will work using the logic “if this then that.” One does not need to be genius, let alone an engineer to make use of this, as it is actually rather simple. IFTTT would simply state that if circumstances are this, then the action desired will be that. For instance, if you happen to be in your driveway when leaving the house, then pressing the button could lock your house doors. Or, imagine you are in your bed, then the button will be able to turn off your bedroom lights on your behalf.
The Stone will arrive in onyx black, glacier white and cascade grey shades, costing $30 each or a family three-pack for $60.
