Toddler Twitters With Toys

Posted by TurtleGirl On December - 9 - 2009

You can’t get away from the fact that Twitter manages to capture the imagination of everyone. It’s quick, it’s addictive and it’s easy to use.

 
Then add a toddler to the equation and you have a genius idea. This device is known as the ‘Twoddler’, yup that’s right. It was designed for a toddler. This prototype was designed at at Hasselt University in Belgium and it hooks up to a twitter account, when the baby decides to perform an action, Twitter then decides to update. God forbid if the child has a major tantrum, as there could be some possible spamming involved.

Here’s how the team describes it:

“The software captures sensor data from the activity center and tries to select a predefined text that is related to that sensor data. We are extending the system so it becomes easier to relate certain patterns of sensor readings with a set of strings.

 
For example: when Yorin plays with mommy’s picture for over 3 minutes, a twitter message will be posted saying ‘@mommy_yorin Yorin misses mommy and looks forward playing with her this evening,’ or when Yorin is hitting the doorbell button four times in a row, a twitter message will be posted saying ‘Yorin is showing off his music skills with a new tune.’ We hope to even support dynamic composition of new strings in the future.”
