Bringing innovative Twitter-powered inventions to life at the London Design Festival

The Challenge
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.
The Solution
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.
