Neo-Pixel + IFTTT

After the Neo-Pixel was configured the team worked on integrating the Particle with Twitter feed by using IFTTT. The code for Neo-Pixels was broken up into functions that represented three emotions: sad, glad and mad. These functions were then made available online by using the code Spark.function(). The functions were called using IFTTT where the Particle would listen for an event (tweet) which involved one of the following hashtags: #sad, #mad or #glad. Based on the respective hashtag the appropriate function was called.

Additionally, the team worked to make the system alert the user if their loved one had tweeted multiple times in a row with the same hashtag - indicating extreme happiness/distress/anger. Below you can see the response one tweet is sent and when two tweets are sent, respectively.
