Diving in…Wanted to make a projectthat responded to onlinerelationshipsWould see my ‘TFFs’ in reallife at a conference in April
Work Streams:• Dress Design, Fit and Sew• Bird songs Cannibalized greeting cards• Wings Looked at many a costume designer videos on YouTube. These wings are not be huge, just a little flutter and hopefully not costume-like• Tweet sensor To activate the dress• Arduino Code Pulls it all together
Twitter API with Processing?? Worked, using Twitter 4J. No libraries on iOS Processing! Xbee to server running API? Complicated, not very portable. Web site Twitter to serial? Output from iPhone limited Serious problem..key to whole dress!Tweet Trigger or‘Twigger’
? The iPhone can be set to make a sound when tweeted through notifications…Tweet Trigger or‘Twigger’

Connecting ElectronicsVoltage switch Attached to Arduino pin set as inputBirds and Servos Set as Arduino output pins4 AA Batteries One power source for all elements (removed batteries from Birds to simplify circuit)Arduino Code Watches the input pin and when the switch is closed, the birds sing and then the Servos turn 15 times.
