Tech Tuesday: Energy BBDO Chicago Built Their Own Robot
Ok not a full robot, just the head. Unlike his cousin skynet, eB2DO is an nice robot operating as an internet connected experiment and twitter personality for the Energy BBDO Chicago office. The robot is wired with an array of sensors including temperature, light, vibration, motion, and two push buttons. eB2DO helps out by tweeting the temperature of the office in the morning, sends a shout out when there’s free food up for grabs, and spouts off random updates and facts about the office.
His (or her) sensors are wired through an arduino running firmata, which we found out isn't one of the ships on Battlestar Galactica. eB2DO's real brain runs on processing which listens for different date and time events as well as button and motion inputs. eB2DO’s ultimate goal is to inspire other creatives to use social media in new and interesting ways. He’s recently made appearances outside the office at the Maker Faire. Lets best them and honor Dr. Evil by making real fembots or, at the very least, shark robots with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads. In the mean time, keep up with eB2DO’s twitter feed for inspiration.
