“Developed by American artist David Bowen, this ‘fly tweet’ device sends Twitter messages based on the activities of a collection of houseflies. Living inside an acrylic sphere along with a computer keyboard, the insects move and interact inside their home, landing over the buttons on the keyboard. When a particular key is triggered by the flies, the corresponding character is entered into a Twitter text box. When 140 characters are reached or ‘ENTER’ is triggered, the message containing the accumulated characters is broadcast via twitter in real-time.”
The FireFly by GeoSpace is an all weather, self-illuminated, human powered vehicle. The FireFly shell connects to the front boom of a recumbent trike to create a cycling experience that provides a high level of visibility and protection for any kind of weather, especially dark, cold, or wet environments.
