This is my entry into the Adafruit 6 second electronics film festival: http://adafruit.com/6secs/
I started out building a simple display case for some collectibles and then decided I should do something more with it. Think Billy Big Mouth Bass except much more inappropriate.
If you have ever watched Late Night with Conan O'Brien or have heard of Triumph The Insult Comic Dog you may be able to make some sense of this. This installation searches, reads and archives tweets containing Triumph's famous catch phrase. If you were wondering...Triumph DOES speak AND there is a motion detection mode, but you won't see that in this demo because of the rules.
Progress on this project has been glacially slow because I'm a new dad. Thanks to Adafruit for announcing the 6 second electronics film festival. It gave me incentive to get this project closer to being finished and off my work bench.
