Meggy Jr Rgb Twitter Reader: I Think We Need a Meggy Senior

by Lambert Varias

Evil Mad Scientist Labs have turned their open-source hand-held gaming platform, the Meggy Jr RGB, into a one-line Twitter reader. The Meggy Jr RGB is connected to a computer running a program that detects Twitter updates and then sends “”scrolling” data” one line at a time. The platform will cycle through 5 of the most recent tweets of the people that the logged in Twitter account. After a user-defined time interval it will check for new tweets to display.

Here’s a demo of the hack in action. It kind of hurt my eyes trying to read the message. How about a widescreen Meggy Mr. Oskay? :)

Mucking with the scrolling speed!

If this is the first time you’ve heard of the Meggy Jr RGB, you can get more details about it here. For those who already own a Meggy Jr RGB, you can download the necessary software for the project here. Check out the original post at Evil Mad Scientist Labs for detailed instructions. Because I sure as hell wouldn’t be able to explain it to you in my own words.
