Description

In January 2012 mortierbrigade launched the mortierbrigade hotel. A home away from home for international creative interns.

Since these youngsters are all digital natives, just giving them an ordinary key would be very disappointing.

So to show them that we can be very high tech too, we developed ‘portierbrigade’.

The first tweet driven gate opener in the universe!

The hotel guests have to send a tweet to @portierbrigade.

If they are registered, the handcrafted mortier will push the button opening the gate

immediately.

The portierbrigade combines twitter with ardino hardware.

Now it has proven that it can open a heavy gate, we are investigating other possibilities too,

like:

The first tweet-driven nutcracker

And the first tweet-driven stamp-on-envelope-putter!

Our geeks feel at home now.
