Welsh artist Pete Fowler, who created the really cool artwork for the band Super Furry Animals, made a "Twike" - a bicycle that will tweet its location as you bike around. It's an art project for the Chance Collective for London's EAST Festival that's going on now (March 4 to 11).
Emma of Cakehead Loves Evil blog told us:
The decision to create the ‘Twike’ came with the festival’s ongoing theme of cycling. We are going to be personally cycling loads of fantastic events for cyclists in this year’s EAST including the Cycle East gig tour where you can travel to three gigs taking place in splendid East London locations all in one afternoon, on your bike, for free. Pete was chosen as he works and lives in the very heart of East London. [...]
Working with The Greenhouse Group, the bike will be fitted with a mobile which is programmed to tweet out messages when it comes within range of key areas of the festival, encouraging people to not only follow the bike online but also offline around the festival; there will also be a google maps mashup which shows the path of the bike through East London.
