"Guru Alison and I performed some, uh, innovative 2.0 surgery on an old childhood friend. The result: a real-time Twittering, talking, live-streaming social media phenomenon. I worked with my team at the Drexel Music and Entertainment Technology Lab to develop Teddy’s text-to-speech software.

    @MIKY: After seeing the sleek professional intro and production values of the video, I think it was a given that they’re a “for-profit” group.

    anyway.

    They definitely need a better TTS voice, but aside from that, I think it’s an interesting project. What I find worth contemplation here is the other types of physical manifestations that may be hacked/leveraged for relaying all this “ambient awareness” data from twitter feeds, blog post, flicker photos, fb news feeds, weather services, etc. I know there was a display device made explicitly for just streaming internet data to a desktop (can’t remember the name), but it seemed somewhat redundant when next to a computer. I can think of microwave displays, oven timers, etc anything with an lcd being hacked for this purpose, but the audio / doll route here is a new direction, wonder what other paths there may be…?
