An Edible Twitter Client

FullSizeRender

Description

MeltingTweets is a physical and edible Twitter client that sends a tweet from a modified touch tone telephone with chocolate keys that melt to the touch. The project emphasizes and matches the ephemerality of Twitter posts to the disintegration of chocolate over time. It was built as a nonsense interface for the Stupid Hackathon with the intent of making a project that was both impractical and ridiculous.
