Twitter Controlled Christmas Lights
Author: Andrew Fisher Version: 0.1 Date: 19 December, 2012
This project was done to liven up my Christmas tree and make it a bit more responsive. It was inspired by something similar I saw on Instructables some time ago and decided to do on my own tree. The project gave me a good use case for a combination of a RaspberryPi as well as Arduinos being able to combine them together into a low cost and low-footprint embedded project that plays to the strengths of both.
- Add a python script to be able to interrogate tweets coming off the stream api
- Add threading to be able to process multiple keywords at once and send messages to serial
- Set up a file with routing between keywords and specific lights
