Hacked Big Mouth Billy Bass Fish Also Tweets

Just when I thought that singing Big Mouth Billy Bass fish couldn't get more annoying some guy hacks it to say Twitter updates. An ARM microcontroller was implanted in his head so that he now can read tweets.

When you look past the annoying voice of the fish, the technology is pretty cool. Dan Ros implanted a MBED chip in the fish and added an SD card with .wav files. But having the fish say recorded phrases was just boring so he came up with the Twitter idea, attached an Ethernet wire and wrote some MBED code.

Apparently the fish is offline now, but you can Twitter to him and he will say the words out loud. Is it just me or does anyone want him to just start singing "Don't Worry Be Happy" again? [MBED via Slashgear]
