Chatter Pillow – Adium, PHP, Arduino, LEDs… wireless notification pillow

Chatter Web
Rebecca sent in this great MAKE/CRAFT project, she writes – “Chatter uses the Plushie Message Framework (chat-parsing script to Arduino to wireless module) to send selected instant messages from your computer to the message pillow. Often times I leave my message client open just to get that “emotional check-in” or other brief snippet from my sweetheart, but I don’t want messages from anyone else. With the Chatter Pillow, I just alter a few parameters in the script to filter all but three messages from him: “xo,” “on my way,” and “talk to me.” That way I can be on the couch or ready for bed and still get the message. The pillow lights up with the appropriate symbol indicating whether he’ll be home soon or if I should make my way to the computer to answer a question.”Link & photo set.

  1. Would the Arduino board have any value to someone already fairly experienced with PICs and with a decent amount of prototyping gear?
