Happy Birthday #twatch

Posted on Thursday, September 23rd, 2010 in #twatch by Ian

It’s been a year since our first project, the #twatch ethernet LCD backpack (part 1, part 2). The #twatch scrolls the current top 10 topics on Twitter. It also works with programs like LCD Smartie and LCDproc to display PC stats and playlist info. There’s a bunch of great user-contributed scripts too.

Nearly 500 #twatches were made, but that’s probably the end of production. There’s just one assembled #twatch PCB left, and a couple #twatches with LCDs already attached. Get the very first Dangerous Prototype while there’s still some left.

An assembled #twatch is $30, including worldwide shipping. A #twatch with an LCD is $45, including worldwide shipping.

More photos and videos of the #twatch after the break.
