Tweet-a-pot is the next in fancy twitter enabled devices. This coffee pot enables its owner to make a pot of coffee from anywhere they have cell phone reception, using twitter and an arduino board.
The tweet-a-pot is the easy implementation for remote device control! with a bit of code and some hardware, you can have your very own twitter enabled coffee pot.
Take a look at this quick video, Special thanks to Sam:
Step 1: Supplies
1 Power Switch Tail, this is basically a relay that is used to interface with the AC voltage
1 Arduino Board (any will do)
1 Computer running the arduino IDE and Python
1 Drip Coffee Pot
Step 2: Setting Up Your Computer
To interface between the arduino and twitter, we are going to use python. There is a library that is already put together that enables us to use the twitter API. It's called python-twitter.
After you have installed python, install the python-twitter library and all its dependencies. If you run into trouble just consult the documentation over on the python-twitter website.
Next, install the Arduino IDE so you can program your arduino and talk to it via serial port.
Once those are set up and working, time to go grab your credentials from twitter.com
