LIFX has rightfully been getting a lot of attention lately for their neat wifi controlled LED bulb. There’s a lot of info on their kickstarter page so I won’t repeat it here.
It just inspired a project that I’d love to see but won’t probably ever execute on myself.
I’d love to see a wifi enabled set of rechargeable batteries.
Basically, put the battery in whatever toy/device you have around the home. In an app, get a notification if the battery is running low. Turn the device on and off via that same app, etc…
Why yes, this is purely so I can scare/delight my kids by poltergeisting all their battery operated toys.

Add a small speaker to the battery for the fun of “haunting” the toy. =D
Beta tested an iOS game and got stuck in a sandbox mode on Game Center? I’m not sure that this will work for everyone, but I managed to resolve it by:
Settings > General > Profiles
Tap on profile, tap red button to delete. Launch Game Center, sign out, sign back in.
