Twitter Powered Red Bull Machine
A few weeks ago, a package showed up at the Little Tinker office inviting the team to join the 2012 Red Bull Creation Competition. Inside, we found a Bullduino module.
The only rules for the contest?
- Have fun
- Build something awesome
This is exactly our kind of challenge, so we jumped right in. In true Little Tinker style, we started dreaming up ways of having our creation interact with our favorite digital events.
We put our hard hats together and the result was a Twitter-powered Red Bull Machine.
The way it works is simple: Tweet using the hashtag #GiveMeWings, and the machine dispenses, opens, and pours a Red Bull into glasses for you and your friends to enjoy.
We think we have something really great here. The project uses the latest in Wi-Fi technology and cutting-edge fabrication tools to perform beyond what we originally imagined.
Here’s the video. We think you’ll like it as much as we do.
