BarCamp Liverpool: Getting Started With Arduino - How to Build a Twitter-monitoring Alertuino

This is the first of a couple of posts I'll no doubt be making about Barcamp Liverpool - this one being the easiest to get out into the world.

I did a session about getting started with Arduino physical computing boards on Saturday afternoon. I talked a little bit about what the Arduino boards are first, and then stepped through the ubicomp equivalent to "Hello World" and from that moved on to hacking a toy ray gun so that it would alert me whenever someone twittered about Barcamp Liverpool. I'll expand upon the twitter side of things more when I write-up Bubblino...

Here are the slides. When I was writing them I tried to make them make sense if you weren't at the talk, but if anything isn't clear then ask questions in the comments.

Is the code for your Bubblino/Alertuino device open source? I am trying to make a similar twitter-connected device and could use the help.

Thanks!

Hi, I'm trying to find the Perl script/program to run that will pass the alert to the Alertuino, I'm integrating it into an interactive art installation and I know NOTHING about Perl, but would love your help.

Cheers,
Martin

The code for both the Alertuino (complete with perl script) and Bubblino (using an Ethernet shield) are available on my Google code page - http://code.google.com/p/mcqn/source/browse/#svn/trunk/Alertuino
