The Arduino Sonar Buzzer Bring More Fun to Twitter Users!

Twitter has become increasingly popular recently. According to the latest survey, there are more than 4 million diehard Twitter users from all around the world in 2008! The number is expected to be increased steadily in upcoming years and some even predicted that it might surpass FaceBook in one day (Well, it’s just a matter of time)… For all Twitter users, this Arduino sonar buzzer project will attract your attention here, as it’s related to PHP Twitter!

By using serproxy, you can channel serial data running through the computer to network traffic. There is nothing more fun than twittering with this… Continue reading
