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.

 THANK YOU LA AND @adobemax ! Had a blast but it's time to get back to NYC and start doing some amazing things at @citi ! @hailme377 @t_diary @telstner @chwilliams12 @adobe  This is why I will speak at events like @adobemax or anywhere that has a stage that will have me. So humbled and so happy that I can share my knowledge that has this type of impact.  How do you end such a great day? By fulfilling a childhood dream and stopping in at The Jim Henson Company of course!
 Had to stop into @thetruetattoo to see the new home of my brother @lukewessman yesterday to get some new ink for @hailme377 and a little world domination planning  A huge and heartfelt thank you to everyone who came to my @adobemax sessions, stopped me in the hall to talk and was so supportive of my move to Citi! See everyone next year! #adobemax @adobe @adobecreativecloud  Such an amazing afternoon seeing the incredible things my friends at Apple and Adobe have been collaborating on. Plus let me say again how amazing the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil are.
 @adobemax 2015 is in the books and the champaign has started to flow at @bouchon_bistro  I always talk about how having an idea never happens as a 'light bulb' moment and those types of ideas are unicorns. As always @t_diary captured that concept absolutely perfectly. Love his work so much.  I can tell you from first hand experience that iPad Pro and Apple Pencil ARE FUCKING AWESOME!!!! #apple #applepencil
