USE-IT Twitter Split-flap Display

Proof of concept of the USE-IT Twitter Split-flap Display, a project issued by USE-IT and built by a few of my students Professional Bachelor ICT

The whole installation is connected via a Netduino board to Twitter and monitors a certain (configurable) hashtag. Tweets found are then displayed on the split-flap display. Heart of the installation is a MCP23018. The split-flaps themselves were recovered from an old train station.

The current installation is only a proof of concept (limited to 8 characters) running in demo mode (showing a set of pre-configured words) and is not optimized yet (characters turn one-by-one, not simultaneously).
