Rambler takes microblogging one step further

Rambler is a physical publishing format for the obsessive microblogger.

The format consists of a pair of sensor and bluetooth enabled sneakers connected to a Twitter account. With each step taken, the shoes automatically transmit a message to Twitter made up of the word 'tap' and punctuation marks.

A message - or tweet - generated by Rambler will typically look something like this: . . tap . tap tap . . . tap tap . . . . tap . . . tap tap . . . . tap . . tap . . . tap tap . . tap tap tap tap tap tap.

Rambler is developed by designers Ricardo Nascimento and Tiago Martins. The project is a witty critique of our need to share trivial information on social networks such as Twitter.
