Twitter LED table Answered

Macetech has modified this IKEA table with a 9x9 array of RGB LEDs that are controlled by twitter. Anyone can start changing the colors by sending a tweet.

Want to try it? Here's an example tweet:

#ledtable 0,3,red; 1,2,green; 4,4,#FD2245;

#ledtable - lets the table get the message.
X,Y,color;
- X and Y are coordinates from 0 to 8 and the color is what color you want it to be. You can use a name or a hex code

Be sure to end each color with a semicolon. Try it out and see the results in the stream below.

It's sweet. I've been thinking about a Twitter-controlled LED project for a little while now that is unlikely to fully happen unless a large chunk of time opens up.
