This passive device flickers and changes color based on the volume of tweets for a chosen hashtag.

Watching a game while at work probably won’t help your end-of-year evaluation, but a new device called Kixl gives you a passive way to stay on top of the latest online soccer development. Created by Uniform, an independent creative agency, the device flickers and changes color based on the volume of tweets for a chosen hashtag.

Kixl glows green when there isn’t much activity, flaring orange as conversation builds, and red when the conversation is buzzing. In the same way that people use a clock to check-in with time, Kixl is a shared object that different people can glance at, and all come away with the same understanding.
