Design of the Day – A Virtual TweetingSeat

Today I bring you a wonderful invention called the TweetingSeat. Every time someone sits on this seat, pictures of them are uploaded to a live twitter feed via two cameras; one located on the actual bench looking outward to the surrounding space and the other from a distance looking at the person sitting on the bench!

Created by innovative Northern Ireland product designer Chris McNicholl, the  TweetingSeat was designed to combine our digital and physical worlds and introduce people into a virtual environment. I believe the seat is based in the grounds of the University of Dundee, but I’m not 100% sure if it’s moved around to various places. You can follow the live TweetingSeat on twitter and you never know you might see someone you know!
