Here’s a Twitter oddity I am absolutely not going to do the opposite of talk about. You’ve probably seen something like this before, but its ties to social media and the fact that you can watch it in real time set it apart.
This is Marble Art, and while they could have spent a couple more hours on a name, it’s impressive nonetheless. Essentially, it’s a marble coaster powered by tweets – specifically, the hashtag #marbleart.tv. Punch the keys (for God’s sake) and check out the live webcam feeds to watch your marble do that thing marbles like to do: succumb to gravity. While I for one wish there was a little more control over a user’s marble, I guess beggars can’t be choosers.
At the time of writing this, the guys in charge seem to be fiddling with the machine, so I’m a little apprehensive about throwing marbles at them from afar. But you’re more than welcome to give it a try!
