Guess what? You can live like a ninja without learning how to throw stars nor running on roof tops silently. Ninja Blocks is a pretty neat concept where it makes the most out of the internet.
So what’s the concept?
How would you like to manage and monitor your house through the internet and your phone and other portable devices? Now, it is possible. Ninja Blocks are small blocks that hook to the internet. Using various internet services such as Dropbox, Ninja Blocks can provide you with data that you want.
Rather than buying a high tech $199 or more security alarm system, you can just use a Ninja Block. Hook up the motion sensor and camera attachment to your Ninja Block and it will automatically capture an image whenever the motion sensor detects movement. Immediately after, the picture is then uploaded to your Dropbox account. Once the upload is complete, you will receive an alert that your account has been updated. Simply open the file and you will see the time and the person that broke into your house.

This idea is pretty original. I haven’t seen anyone else do something like this. However, it isn’t that hard to make something similar using this concept. You can, by all means, just use a net book and hook a couple web cams to it, or just use a nanny cam. Depending on how much effort you are willing to put into something like this, your very own home monitoring system can be way better than the features the Ninja Blocks offer. The bottom line to keep in mind is that if you are lazy like me and don’t want assemble all the hardware, Ninja Blocks will provide you with everything you need to set up your very own customized internet based management system.
