An interactive Twitter clock with a vintage twist

Zoe RomanoDecember 3rd, 2013

Johannes Hoffmann is an interaction and graphic designer sharing with us his ┬áhand-made Tweety Clock. It’s a vintage but interactive Twitter clock , built with Arduino and Ethernet Shield, and featured with the original ‘cuckooo’ sound and a little printer for the output.

Arduino is checking if there are new tweets from a specific Twitter-Account. If so, the “bird servo” starts to rotate and the bird-door opens. Then the two “sound servos” brings the Cuckoo Clock flutes to sing and the bird nod with his head. Simultaneously, the thermo printer prints all new tweets.
