sn34kb0t starts sneaking every time someone in the area posts a tweet. It traverses stealthily over flat terrain using two dc motors and 2 servos, and communicates with ifttt.com through a cloudbit.

At first, the concept we were going for was to create a terminally depressed robot that would disconnect itself from its power source after seeing lots of negative tweets (via ifttt.com and cloudbit). Although this was a very viable direction that we could have kept going with, we decided that littleBits weren’t the right medium for the message (too many lights, spotty connection, poor movement options, etc.).

Instead, we put a shoebox over the robot.
