TWITCH Bench Display with GetInTouch

As some of you may know, I have a Twitch Channel where I hang out when I'm working in the Lab. During one of my streams I met a couple of really nice German guys who are the creators of the GetInTouch extension for Twitch. I was very impressed with the Arduino Library they created that can easily connect an Arduino to your Twitch channel.

After playing around for a while I came up with a LCD Bench Display that allows viewers to send messages during the stream. As a bonus, it plays some preset messages when it's not in use. Free advertising! So in this episode I'll show you how to build your own.
