[Marcus Olsson] of slickstreamer made a battery-powered temperature logger using ThingSpeak to store and visualize the data collected. He chose the Electric Imp Wi-Fi module for connectivity. The project is complete with a 3D printed case.
All of the source code to connect Electric Imp to ThingSpeak and the 3D printer design files are available on Marcus’ blog ‘slickstreamer‘.

[C.A.V.A.] created a cigar humidor with a social life. A humidor stores cigars in a humidity controlled environment to maintain freshness, but this special humidor sends the humidity sensor value to ThingSpeak and alerts Twitter when you need to add water. The project uses a humidity sensor and an Arduino Ethernet to post the data to the ThingSpeak API.

C.A.V.A. has more info about the project, parts list, and photos on his website.
In 2013, ThingSpeak was used in 158 countries and territories. The vast majority of the traffic came from countries in North America, Europe, Australia, and South America. ThingSpeak is growing quickly around the world!
