Tweetlite flashes Twitter messages in Morse code

Tweetlite” is a Arduino-powered plexiglass cube that displays a person’s Twitter stream in LED flashes of Morse code. That would probably drive me nuts (although its creator Bruce Drummond does make a good point about its usefulness as a Morse code learning aid), but I’ve always been a sucker for ambient lights communicating status, even if in practice it can be a bit tedious.

    That’d make people pay attention to the flashing yellow and flashing red lights at intersections…

    Older amateur radio operators who tweet will love it. I’m assuming that is a small demographic, though. The small demographic thing is also probably why Morse code is not generally offered as an input method for texting on regular cell phones. I wish it was…
