A while ago, i ordered myself some Phidgets since i was wanting to get some for quite some time and love the idea of beeing able to manipulate hardware through actionscript. I also couldn’t deny my love for everything that emits lights, so my choice of getting the Phidget LCD Interface was close at hand ;).
Well, i found some time and actually built a small Twitter Client that grabs your Friends Timeline (includes your tweets aswell) and it displays it on the Interface. Here a short video of it. Please disregard the quality since it’s been taken with the Iphone ;)
The Application comes as a Windows Desktop Application built around “Launcher” – a Desktop Application Framework that is not yet public but i will open up to the public soon.
Under the Hood it’s all Flex 3 / Actionscript 3 using the native Phidget API Library and my open sourced Twitter API Library “Tweetr“.
If anyone is interested in the Source Code let me know and i will gladly put it online. It will in any case be available when i make “Launcher” publicly available since it made a nice use-case.
