Great project! Check out more here.
@heywpi is a simple project that pulls twitter mentions from the twitter account (@heywpi) scans the text of the tweets for colors, and then lights up a window on the WPI campus with that color using RGB LEDs. Once the new color has been written the LEDs, a photo is taken and then tweeted back at the person who changed the color, showing them that the color did in fact change. It is meant to be a social experiment of sorts, demonstrating the use of twitter for physically interactive projects.
