Sometimes low-tech is a cooler solution than high-tech.

This sensor device detects if your package was handled roughly during transport: no electronics, just clever engineering.

@polychrome okay but serious question i’ve wondered about since first seeing these in college: how do you ship these to the origination point in a way that they’re not pre-ruined?

@r4v5 @polychrome You can just reset them if they’re not inside of packaging, can’t you?

@slightlyflightyone @polychrome okay i checked the website and the red dots are “arming pins” that you pull out when you’re attaching them to the thing that needs monitoring


@slightlyflightyone @r4v5 Aha! It's even cleverer than I thought!
