A Steampunk Ticker Tape Machine That Streams Your Tweets
Adam Vaughan’s Twitter Tape Machine incorporates two technologies into one device.
Designed like a Victorian ticker tape machine in which people used to keep track of stocks, this device actually streams tweets using an Ethernet connection.
The Twitter Tape Machine checks your Twitter account every 30 seconds, printing out your new tweets through a thermal printer at the base of it.
However, Vaughan is making new improvements to this device and will create a second version of it so that it can receive tweets using WiFi.
