Some people aren’t content with your run-of-the-mill blinking lights. Take, for instance, this Arduino-powered Twitter Monkey from maker Pete Prodoehl. He could have had his script send out an audio alert like everyone else, instead he chose to create this animatronic monkey using an Arduino and a couple of servos. Every time it sees a keyword it goes bananas, flapping its arms about like any excited monkey would do. It may not be your cup of tea if your a nervous person, but it sure does beat your average blip. (Thanks, Pete!)
