Twitter-enabled LED table lets you get your Lite-Brite on from afar


Well, here's a bit of a twist on the ever popular DIY Twitter gadget. Rather than controlling a device via Twitter, or having a device simply display or read tweets aloud, the folks behind this LED-stuffed table have taken a slightly more artistic approach by relying on the tweeting masses to generate patterns of light on the table. That's done with a combination of a hashtag and a specific format for entering colors and coordinates, which head first for a MacBook Pro before being transmitted to the table via Bluetooth. Not content to leave it there, the table's creators have even set up a live USTREAM feed to let you see the results of your tweet. Hit up the link below to try it out for yourself.
