.NET Micro Framework enables breathalyzer to tweet

There are many reasons to never tweet drunk, but reasoning is never high on the list of priorities under the influence. This is why you should just let this .NET-enabled breathalyzer mashup tweet for you.

Developer Matt Isenhower posted this cool project to Channel9’s Coding4Fun community today as a sample implementation of his MicroTweet Twitter library for the .NET Micro Framework. Together with Netduino Plus, an open source electronics platform and an alcohol gas sensor, he essentially created an internet-connected breathalyzer that tweeted the results.

As standard with Coding4Fun projects, the specific components and instructions on how he put this together are all available in the article. No doubts the end-user testing phase of the project required a certain level of commitment to the job.
