Tweet-to-Speak Bear

The Tweet-to-Speak Sugar Bear is an animatronic robot that reads your tweets. During a two week campaign for Sugar Crisp Cereal, users could tweet to @sugarcrisp then watch the bear read their tweet live from sugarcrisp.ca.

I worked on a team to design the user experience and provided technical direction on the development side. The project incorporated several different technologies including Node.js, Raspberry Pi, Python and a text-to-speech web service.
