Tlight: an hotel joins the Web of Things driven by Paraimpu

The permanent installation named Tlight, created by the Quit group and connected to the Web thanks to Paraimpu, allows everyone to change the color tones and the behavior of the lights placed on the top of the big glass tower of the T Hotel of Cagliari, Sardinia, just posting a message by Twitter.

The fascinating and suggestive installation is one of the first real, permanent experiments and applications of Paraimpu.

To interact with it, post a message on Twitter with hashtag: #thotel and writing a phrase containing one of the following words:
red, blue, green, orange, yellow, white, cyan, purple, wave, different, couple, full, pulse and random.

For example:   #thotel blue is the color

More in deep: the application has been built by Quit connecting a Paraimpu Twitter Sensor to a Paraimpu Max/MSP Actuator. The first queries Twitter for tweets containing the hash #thotel and the connection is configured in order to forward to the Max/MSP Actuator only tweets which contain one of the listed color names. The Max/MSP Actuator effectively drives 16 RGB big lights on top of the T Hotel.
