How do you make a good cup of coffee while traveling home? Mix equal parts of your computer, Arduino, automatic coffee maker, Power Tail Switch and Twitter! In this Instructables, frenzy shows how to setup a Python interface between the Arduino and Twitter, connect the Power Tail Switch between Arduino Pin 13 and ground, and plug your prepped coffee maker into the switch. You now have a Twitter-enabled coffee pot. By Tweeting certain code words you turn the coffee maker on and off! This setup could easily be adapted to control any AC powered device safely handled by the Power Tail Switch.
