Twitter-enabled LED table

Posted in twitter by Conner Flynn on February 27th, 2010

Looks like a Lite-Brite table, but it is so much more. Instead of the usual, controlling a device via Twitter, or just displaying and reading tweets out loud, this LED does something different. It uses the tweeting masses to generate patterns of light on the table in an artistic way.

This is accomplished by using a hashtag and a specific format for entering colors and coordinates, which first are sent to a MacBook Pro and then transmitted to the table over Bluetooth. There’s even a live USTREAM feed that lets you see the results of your tweet.

Pretty neat.
