Developed by American artist David Bowen, this ‘fly tweet’ device sends Twitter messages based on the activities of a collection of houseflies.

Living inside an acrylic sphere along with a computer keyboard, the insects move and interact inside their home, landing over the buttons
on the keyboard. When a particular key is triggered by the flies, the corresponding character is entered into a Twitter text box. When 140
characters are reached or ‘ENTER’ is triggered, the message containing the accumulated characters is broadcast via twitter in real-time.

Follow @flycolony for real-time updates.  I think this one is my favourite.
