Look Ma, No Hands: Tweeting With Your Voice

This is just another one of those boring weekends where I felt the need to hack on something.

If you follow Google Chrome’s blog you’re probably aware of this little nifty feature they started to implement in their latest builds: HTML5 voice recognition.

And that’s when it struck me: “Hey, what if I use that and tweet with my voice instead of typing?”

The result of this hacking session is LoudParrot, a sample Rails app that shows how to do just that. You will need a fairly recent build of Google Chrome -beta - which you can download here.

You can get the source on GitHub.
