This cool project displays the collective “feeling” of the entire twitter world in a multicoloured mood light. The mood light constantly monitors twitter and aggregates the tweets based on emotional content to determine a world wide mood. Once the mood has been determined it is displayed in the mood light with different colours indicating different moods. This is a great way to quickly find out if a significant event has happened. To get started with this unique project checkout the following link.
