TweetingSeat: The social media park bench

TweetingSeat is an interactive park bench that was designed by Chris McNicholl to explore the environments in which the bench is placed and the people whom it encounters.  Each time someone sits down, TweetingSeat uploads an image from two cameras to the Twitterfeed. One camera is located on the bench looking at the surrounding space, and another is located nearby looking at the people who use it. The hope is that by brining the real and digital worlds together that people and communities will form their own relationship with the object through the way in which they choose to use it. No word yet on where and when the TweetSeat will be installed but you can keep up with the project on their blog.

 Doesn't get much better than this with a perfect day in NYC overlooking Central Park.  This evening we're watch the incredible documentary 'Iris' about fashion icon Iris Apfel. I love it because it's a coming attraction of what life with @hailme377 will be like in the future.  One or two more screens and my office is going to look like something out of the Matrix... #DesignerProblems
 So there a small chance that I went a little overboard on the Amish corn today but it's totally worth it. #foodiesofinstagram  Few people know that Frank Baum the author of The Wizard of Oz was from Peekskill and the yellow brick road was inspired by the old streets of the city which were yellow brick. Only one section remains for historical preservation but it's a secret I love about my town. #wizardofoz #yellowbrickroad  Pork heaven at @fishgamehudson
