Tweet Haroon Baig’s Twitwee Clock and it will deploy the cuckoo and show the tweet on a small LCD. The project appears to use a combination of an Arduino and Chumby guts to do its thing.

The Twitwee Clock is a modified Cuckoo Clock that wirelessly connects to the internet and constantly checks for new status updates or search results from the Twitter API. New Tweets are displayed on the built-in display in near-realtime accompanied by the charming yet obtrusive call of a mechanical cuckoo poping out of the clock.



The clock could monitor any twitter stream or search, so it could for example inform the user about new tweets in his personal timeline. In exhibition context however it is configured to react on self-referenced tweets. If “TwitweeClock” is mentioned in any tweet, the tweet is displayed on the built in screen and the cuckoo mechanism is triggered.

Wanna tweet the clock? Send any tweet with TwitweeClock in the message.
