Things used in this project
Ever been at a conference, coffee shop, or public work and have people come talk to you when busy or the other way around people don't talk to you cause they think you're busy?
I've created "Talk 2 Me... Maybe" to add another layer of body language that is easy for others to see physically and on Twitter.
From your Pebble, you can use the Talk 2 Me...Maybe app to select your current status. The defaults are:
Selecting a status will broadcast this to your status to the companion Photon and Firebase. The Photon will light up a Xadow LED 5x7 that was physically modified to bypass the default interface, cause I couldn't make it work otherwise.
Did I hear you say Firebase?
Yes, we're also publishing the status to Firebase, this allows other clients to also receive an update instamagically. Cool, isn't it?
In our case, there's a Node.js server listening to Firebase and depending on the mood, a predefined tweet is sent. Additionally, if you set your status to
then your location and an image of where your current location is will be tweeted as well. This is done using the Google Static Maps API.
