TWITTER Guardian Robot

Posted by TurtleGirl On August - 14 - 2009

This is a brilliant masterpiece. A robot that is designed to monitor your Twitter feed and then apparently react to it. It’s called the Guardian Robt and it was invented by Ken Lim. It’s design is to encourage you to interact with posts it will find on Twitter and it monitors twitter for unhappy or sad updates from your friends. Very bizarre.The Guardian Robot can even send a Retweet on your behalf from its own Twitter address @guardianrobot. It was constructed by using two servos, two microswitches and a few other parts which cost Ken about $70 to make. Check out the video.

    I work with Ken at the Guardian and he went one step more this week and hooked up a live video stream of the robot.

    So if you send #highfive or #ineedahug @guardianrobot on Twitter, you can watch him work on your requests live at http://bit.ly/gurobottv.

    Enjoy!
