This candy machine, the creation of Michael Nilsson and Marcus Olsson, is part of ThoughtMade, an Ignite-like gathering in Malmö, Sweden. The machine is equipped with a Beagle Board running Linux and dispenses candy whenever someone tweets “#ThoughtMade is sweet!” [Thanks, Chris]

    I can still remember the days when Coke machines were connected to finger clients (and yes I’ve been practicing my shouts of, “Hey, you kids, get off my lawn!” while waving a cane).

    Hi there,
    met you guys at FooCamp 2008 and still owe you a Mac tattoo :) Would be cool if someone from MAKE is around Malmö/Copenhagen on Friday and could come to Thoughtmade? Otherwise, we might collect soem cool stuff for MAKE?

    Take care

    This is great. What exactly is the search string? It would be nice to be more inventive with my tweets.
