There are a lot of Twitter feed readers around the Web that use Arduino AND a PC to display twits on LCD displays or whatsoever. Then, he decide it was the time to design a solution for performing the same job WITHOUT A PC, and here’s the project.
In a simple equation:
Arduino + Ethernet Shield + LCD Display + Twitter = automatic Twitter feed reader with LCD!
The items you need are the following:
– Arduino (I used Duemilanove)
– Ethernet Shield
– an LCD display (mine was 4 lines, but you can easily adapt the software to other dimensions)
– a box capable of holding the system together
– a simple Arduino sketch
