Social networking on the internet is possibly the best way to remain in touch or updated with friends and happenings going on across the world. Making internet networking simple and swift, interface and interaction designer Haroon Baig has modified an old-fashioned cuckoo clock that connects to the internet wirelessly and looks for new updates or search results from the Twitter API regularly. Entitled the “TwitweeClock,” the clock displays the latest tweets in near-real time on the built-in display, while a mechanical cuckoo popping out of the clock gives it a conventional touch.
In addition, the cuckoo clock makes use of Chumby, a hardware open source platform with a Linux operating system, amalgamating a conventional device with the latest technology. Intended to react on self-referenced tweets, the TwitweeClock can monitor any Twitter stream or search effortlessly. Go past the break to see the video.
