TweetingSeat, by British product designer Chris McNicholl, is an interactive park bench that allows people to interact with each other in person and digitally via Twitter.

Designed to explore the potential of connecting digital and physical communities, the bench logs its usage by uploading images of its users and the environment to a live Twitterfeed.

Each time someone sits down, TweetingSeat uploads an image from two cameras to the Twitterfeed. One camera is located on the bench looking at the surrounding space, and another is located nearby, looking at the people who use it.
