Bringing innovative Twitter-powered inventions to life at the London Design Festival.
Twitter UK had a bold, fun idea: to launch a competition called #PoweredByTweets which invited members of the public to come up with innovative Twitter-powered creations. The top six ideas were turned into real-life working prototypes and exhibited at the London Design Festival at Somerset House.
Pixie Labs built each of the six ideas into working prototypes, which were on public display for a week. Each idea was sketched out, then designed and coded into working artefacts made out of wood, metal, 3D printed components, laser-cut acrylic and items bought from eBay. The inventions were then connected to Twitter and installed as interactive displays to delight thousands of visitors.
