Tweet Control

Tweet Control is the first physical controller for your twitter feed.

It is an input device that can offer two different scales of values: a countinuos one dimensional range related to the distance between the controller and whatever obstacle in front of the sensor, and a mechanical knob that can be used as a selector. The physical interactions are easy and self evident.

The idea behind Tweet Control is to expand the environments where news and microblogging are displayed in the space.

Avoiding to interact with the standard keyboard or mouse, different kinds of interactions emerged. They can provide, not only a physicality of new objects, but a new set of gestural behaviors related to the digital world.
