The Airo is an avant-garde radio that destroys the misconceptions that technology and information should be personalized.
Airo is an experimental radio that reads tweets out to you. Using Arduino controllers and Twitter’s API, the Airo fetches tweets and translates text to speech, reading them out like the headlines on a radio. Built with a vertical volume controller at its base, and a knob that lets you select the type of tweet, you can have a stream of news, tech, or music related tweets. A fan at the back acts as a metaphorical horizon widener, allowing you to access tweets from a wider area. Open the fan out more, and the Airo fetches tweets from a larger radius.
