Would you ever buy Twitter or Facebook shoes? With the amount of people using these services, I’m sure that there is a market for these.
These adidas concept shoes were designed by Gerry Mckay. Personally, I wouldn’t buy these.
Maker Pete Prodoehl recently came up with the Twitter Monkey. What does it do? It tweets, of course, right?
Actually, that’s not how it works. Instead, Twitter Monkey alerts you in an annoying way when it ‘sees’ specific keywords come up in a Twitter stream by wildly gesticulating its arms.
Some days I think I’m the only person that just doesn’t get Twitter. I guess it’s always just seemed like Facebook without most of the features. Perhaps that’s really the point for some people. Either way, my Twitter account sits unused for the most part.
In the future, a trip to the vending machine will no longer require bills and coins. You’ll need a mobile phone and a PayPal account though. Make Magazine spotted this concept device made by Ray Tanaka and his colleagues at PayPal Labs.
If you haven’t got enough tweets to read, you can make sure that you pollute the Twitter-verse even further, thanks to this USB device, which allows your dog to tweet as well.
The Canine Twitterer allows your pet to automatically send tweets, which can then be posted to any social networking site.
Peek has been selling portable devices that look a bit like smartphones without calling capability that support email and texting for a while. The company has three models on the market with the Classic, Pronto, and the new Peek 9.
Good thing it’s just a photoshop of an otherwise real booth, whose purpose I don’t know, but is no doubt decent, necessary, benign. Because if this was an actual twitter booth, it could only have been made from congealed stupidity.
I know that there are a lot of people out there who constantly email and text. At the same time, there are plenty of people out there that want to save money and are thinking about canceling their data plan on their mobile phone.
The spaceship Discovery will leave Earth on its final mission on the 1st of November. It will take along something entirely different, a robot! This is the robot that we’ve heard about before, the Robonaut 2, but there is something new about it: it will be tweeting all the way into space.
Nope, this mug won’t tweet for you, but it will show off all the people you follow on Twitter.
While a tweeting mug could be kind of cool, it would be pretty useless unless you’d be able to input some swanky 140-character tweets.
I think social networking is sometimes like over-sharing. Really, do you really need to share every little insignificant detail of your life with the entire universe? Now here’s something that reveals even more about your inconsequential tweets – clothes that tell the whole world how you feel!
It’s always nice to see old school technology brought back from the dead to serve some modern purpose. In this case, we’re looking at an old Apple IIe, customized to display posts from Twitter.
Modder Yergacheffe had to MacGyver together a PC to Apple II interface to transfer data from a modern PC’s USB port.
I always knew that a mod like this would pop-up: a cuckoo clock modified to display tweets, complete with a blue cuckoo.
Haroon Baig calls his mod the Twitwee Clock. Based on an Arduino controller board, it displays an analog clock as well as tweets on a small touchscreen.
My Suite Stuff – the guys who make the Adobe CS pillows – have partnered with atebits, makers of popular twitter program Tweetie. There’s the Tweetie for iPhone icon on the top, and the Tweetie for Mac on the bottom.
