Video: Watch The “Twitter Monkey” Go Bananas

Created by hacker and “maker” Pete Prodoehl, the Twitter Monkey is powered by an Arduino, an open-source electronics prototyping platform, and two servo motors.

He’s programmed to monitor Twitter for specific keywords and when he picks up that keyword, he “goes bananas,” flapping his arms up and down. So if your ChromeBird or Echofon is letting you down, you may want to consider building your very own Twitter monkey.
