Tweetgrass


Second prototype begins!

For our second prototype, we decided to make some key changes to the planter box and the TweetGrass stand:

  • make the box flatter and wider in order to display the wheatgrass better, to store all the hardware, and to allow people the counter space to juice the wheatgrass
  • provide two recycling bins underneath the planter-counter so that when people recycle something, they will tweet the tweet-screen (we were really inspired by what we saw on thefuntheory.com!)
  • change from a solenoid valve, which relied on gravity, to a basic water pump
  • improve the water nozzles so as to provide a more even distribution of “tweet rain”
