See what you mean blog

Inspiration wall

A while back I blogged about ifttt, which allows you connect bits of the web together in a simple way. I have been thinking how we can use this in some cool way at the 'See what you mean' studio.

Recently we all started collecting the things we see that we like and find inspirational on Pinterest (previously we all had folders on our computers.) I thought it could be cool if we could share all these things we find online, in the studio, and so the inspiration wall was born.

This is how it works - our Pinterest rss feeds are passed through ifttt which uploads an image from any new posts to flickr, we have an apple TV hooked up to a projector which shows a screensaver fed from flickr. 5 minutes and no coding knowledge later we have an ever changing wall of inspiration.
