With tons of Morse code keyboards at your disposal already, here is a classy Morse keyboard, dubbed the Morse Key, which has been conceived and created exclusively for updating Twitter. The Morse Key implies an open design exercise in interface archaeology with which you can update your Twitter page by connecting the device to the web through a standard LAN cable.
The machine can decode the Morse signals to Twitter updates. The built-in Arduino Ethernet board helps decode your messages and update your Twitter profile via an API. You just need to connect the Morse Key with LAN and create the Morse code for your updates. Indeed, this amazing build looks like an antique product from 1990s.
These days, nobody uses Morse codes seriously. Apart from some hardcore CW HAM radio guys, no one is even familiar with the Morse keyboard and the traditional electrical telegraphic communication system. Nevertheless, the Morse Key has some attraction; it will at least remind the new generation of the old telegraph and other methods of communications.
In other words, Morse Key is an exercise input gadget in interface archaeology. It will be a nice experience for people from new generations to code their Twitter messages with help of the buzz of the Morse code system. Software requirements for the Morse Key include Arduino 1.0, a Twitter library and the recent TworseKey sketch for Arduino.
The Morse Key hardware comprises of a traditional Morse keyboard, an Arduino Ethernet board, a piezo-buzzer with 50 Ohm resistor to give you auditory feedback and an LED with a 10k Ohm resistor to provide visual feedback. Check out the video below to see how the Morse Key works.
