I received my Twine in the mail yesterday - woohoo! I also received the breakout board, which I started playing with today.
Curious to see that the status for the breakout is either open or closed - is it a pure digital input, then? Or is there firmware coming that could make it an analog input?
In general, are there instructions or a spec of any kind? All I could find was this tumblr post, which doesn't give much info: http://supermechanical.tumblr.com/post/16433382815/an-enlightening-twine-update
I think you can set preferences on your messageboard account to get an email when certain threads are updated. We'll start doing a monthly (or so) email newsletter to announce these things as well.
I also tried the light sensor connected to the moisture sensor and it worked there too. "wet" when a light was shining on it, "dry" otherwise. The moisture sensor also responds when connected to a open or closed switch, so its uses go beyond detecting moisture.
