David Bowen's Installation "allows" Houseflies to Tweet

 

Artist David Bowen created an acrylic sphere containing a keyboard, a collection of houseflies, and various instruments that detect the flies landing on a particular key. The corresponding character is then entered into a twitter text box and when the 140-character limit is reached 'ENTER' is triggered and the tweet is broadcasted in real time. (via)
