New BERG Twitter cuckoo clock is powered by Arduino

flockDesign team BERG has come up with a unique way to receive a Twitter notification – a cuckoo clock.

#FLOCK is a project in conjunction with Twitter UK who asked them to come up with a wireless clock that also creatively linked in the activity on an individual Twitter account.

The project is based on Arduino technology using the BERG Cloud development board, which is said to be compatible with both the Arduino Uno and the larger Mega boards.

Flock will be a limited-edition prize given away as an award by Twitter to ten different vendors that demonstrate the most innovative ways to interact with Twitter.

Arduino is the Italian-designed microcontroller board original aimed at teaching microcontroller interfacing in a low-cost manner, however, since its release in 2006, it has become the low-cost defacto design platform around the globe for a multitude of projects.
