RSS feeds, RS232 comms to LED Display
Hi folks, I thought I would come to the experts as my limited knowledge of coding and design has reached it's limits.
I have a website with webcams viewing a fishtank [link=http://www.photosbykev.com/fishcam/index.php?view=axis]Fish
Cam site[/link]. The site is interactive using hardware directly connected to my router so the viewer can turn lights on/off, move the cameras and burp a frog.
I've recently added a LED scrolling display to the tank and would like to take a feed from Twitter and 'send' the data to the scrolling display via RS-232. My first question is; is this possible? Ideally I would like to do it from my website server rather than have a computer in the loop as currently I don't need to use a computer at all.
The website system using hardware from iobridge.com and I can send data to the LED screen via rs232 using the iobridge API, what I can't figure out is how to grab the Twitter feed and direct it to the scrolling display.
I'm sorry if the explaination is a bit woolly but I can visualise what I want to do but struggle to explain it well.
