The window blinds that adjust THEMSELVES: $60 FlipFlic clip-on gadget transforms regular shutters into 'smart' blinds that react to weather and temperature

When it comes to time and effort-saving gadgets, you may not initially think of window blinds as an area in need of attention.
But the team behind the 'FlipFlic' may have just solved a problem you didn't even know you had.
By clipping its device onto your existing blinds, you will no longer need to get up and physically adjust them as the light and temperature sensors will ensure they always at the right angle.
Installation of FlipFlic is said to take seconds.

The small device, about the size of a roll of coins, attaches to the window blinds magnetically, meaning there are no tools needed.
The gadget will automatically adjust the blinds to a default setting, however, app users can program all the settings individually.
For example, they can choose FlipFlic to instantly open and close the blinds, or simply let FlipFlic use its light and temperature sensors and adjust automatically.
The team set up a Kickstarter page with an initial goal of $50,000 (£34,850).
It has long surpassed this, and now hopes to have raised $100,000 (£69,676) by the deadline tonight.
Co-founder Ksenia Vinogradova said meeting this 'stretch goal' will allow the creators to add more compatibility with other home automation systems.
She came up with the idea while having to open and close 12 window blinds at home, and even more in her office.

'It just hit me; there's got to be a way to automatically control indoor light and temperature without breaking your wallet on expensive and low tech motorized blinds,' she said.
'Window blinds are there to regulate incoming heat and light, but it is nobody's job to open and close them several times a day.
'Such a simple, but annoying task has got to be automated, just like many other things at home.'
Sergey Vinogradova, technology lead and co-founder, added: 'This is an exciting opportunity to design a really practical product that incorporates a lot of cutting­ edge technology, including smart sensors and wireless integration,'
He described it as a 'distinctive and iconic product design that would look terrific in any home.'
Those wishing to donate to the fund will receive a variety of 'thank-you' offers, with the option to pre-order several FlipFlics (and accompanying solar panel charger and USB) in advance.
The FlipFlic is available from Kickstarter for $60 (£42).
