Early Bird alarm clock wakes you with birdsong, reminds you that Twitter is waiting

Early Bird alarm clock wakes you with birdsong, reminds you that Twitter is waitingThe Early Bird alarm clock from Fred & Friends will wake you up gently with the sounds of birdsong. The little bird icon even glows, like some sweet avian angel of addiction, subtly reminding you that Twitter awaits on the intertubez.

This bird themed alarm is easy to set and comes with automatic snooze. Which I suppose beats a shotgun sound effect to quiet those birds.

Twitter Burglar Alarm tweets to let you know your stuff is being stolen

Twitter Burglar Alarm tweets to let you know your stuff is being stolenThis latest Arduino project turns it into a twitter home security system of sorts. The Arduino is used to monitor a home burglar alarm and send out status messages should the status change: Like when the alarm was activated or shut off, error messages, or just when the alarm actually sounds because you are being robbed.

The Arduino’s digital IO pins are wired up to the alarm’s output signals. An XBee wireless module was added, because the alarm control panel is some distance away from the ethernet hook-up, and a simple Linux server (with the USB XBee receiver) monitors any changes and sends the Twitter messages. @alarmdude By the time help gets here I’m gone. Left the zune on your desk.

Kickbee lets unborn children Twitter

Kickbee lets unborn children TwitterUnborn children can now communicate with the outside world. Corey Menscher wanted to experience the kicks, movements and other utero activities of his unborn child, so he developed the Kickbee, a strapped-on set of piezo sensors that monitor the baby and send wireless updates about it to Twitter.

Just wrap a stretchy band around your wife, velcro it in place, and the sensors will react to movement. It also sports an Arduino to make sense of the inputs and wirelessly transmit them, via Bluetooth, to a nearby MacBook Pro; it’s the Pro that actually sends out the Twitter updates, not a magic baby.

Let your plant express itself on Twitter

Let your plant express itself on Twitter
This device let’s your plant talk and share it’s feelings with the whole world over the Internet, and gets what the plant says posted on Twitter. It’s an electronic kit from Adafruit called Botanicalls Twitter Kit, which attaches to your plants, and conveys all the plants’ thoughts and messages to you via the Internet.

Those messages will be posted on Twitter, so you’ll know when they need water or have a lack of soil and minerals. I’m assuming they will feel free to curse you too, you non-watering bastard. So, now that plants can let us know, you can immediately care for them. Once the plant thoughts are posted on Twitter, you’ll get notificed in text messages on your mobile phone by Twitter.
