Nike+ FuelBand hack tracks the health of your Twitter account

Fitness tracking devices are becoming increasingly popular with the Nike+ Fuel bracelet out in front in terms of style and design. Now for dedicated couch potatoes with a fascination for the device but no interest in working out, there's hack that lets you enjoy it without the sweat.

TweetFuel is an unofficial hack of the Nike+ Fuel bracelet that was created by interactive agency StinkDigital to track and measure your Twitter activity in real time. Whenever someone retweets, follows, or mentions the company's Twitter account, an Arduino-controlled mechanism shakes the bracelet and updates the display with the new activity counts. You can see the TweetFuel in action in the video below.
