A Tweet for the Interactive TweetingSeat!
TweetingSeat was created by Product Designer Chris McNicholl and is an original interactive park bench. Seen on notcot.org, the concept aims at connecting the digital world with the physical seating-in-the-park experience. According to the official press release, “The bench is designed to explore the potential for connecting physical and digital communities by logging its usage through uploading images of its users and environment to a live Twitter feed.Each time someone sits down, TweetingSeat uploads an image from two cameras to the Twitter feed. One camera is located on the bench looking at the surrounding space, and another is located nearby looking at the people who use it. Whilst emphasising the features that distinguish it from traditional park benches, the object has been designed with this aesthetic in mind“.
