So, you are going to watch movie in 10 minutes when you get home from work?
Simply send a tweet to your Twitter Popcorn Robot before you leave your work (assuming you live 10 minutes away) and enjoy the popcorn when you get home, all ready to be served.
Does this sound like a cool Twitter robot?
Yes, it’s actually real and William Self(@robedorobotics) has put together an amazing Twitter Popcorn robot using a netbook, USB infrared transmitter, USB-based sensors and controllers.
William also says he will be updating with more features so we will keep our eyes glued to his blog.
Soon, you’ll see our wheeled robots gaining new structure: arms, grippers and maybe even a humanoid torso. We’re not promising a fully capable R2-D2 or Rosie robot. Those would probably cost you $50,000. We are promising good technology and useful robots. Plus fun. Plenty of fun.
Keep up the great work and don’t forget to tip us first @tweethacking on your next Twitter Hack projects.
Here’s the video of it in action:
(Send a tweet to start the popcorn!)
(The robot will not only make the popcorn, it will bring it to your couch.)
