Real-time twitter map device

The project

The objective of the project is to create a small installation based on an interactive world map where you can view the tweets related to one or various subjects in real time, coded by colors and geographically located by continents.

Specifically, we are building a device that reads all the tweets related to “Raspberry Pi” and “Arduino” in real-time, get the location of those tweets and show them on the back-light  world map model with a color coding (red color for Raspberry Pi and blue color for Arduino).

The robotic cocktail machine. Part I: Testing the components

Hi everybody! Moises Morató and I are starting to build a robotic cocktail machine. We already know that there are a lot of amazing projects about cocktail machines on the net, but we decided to build our own cocktail machine design, only for fun.

Actually, our first goal is about building a very basic prototype to check all the components. We decided to do an iteration based project, improving the cocktail machine until we will be satifsfied with the results, and because of that, this is not a regular ‘how to’ post. We will write meanwhile we are doing it, and we encourage you to help us with your ideas and suggestions, and maybe, if you like it, you can build your own cocktail machine simultaneusly.
