Sure, you could build some kind of numerical counter to keep track of new YouTube subscribers. But does an increasing digit display truly convey the importance of such an event? Of course not. What you need is something that recognizes this achievement for what it is and celebrates it with you. Something like Subby, the Interactive YouTube Subscriber Robot.
Whenever [brian brocken] gets a new subscriber, Subby’s little TV screen face lights up, and he either dances, salutes, or does another move within his impressive range of motion. [brian] wrote a Visual Basic app that searches his channel’s page for the subscriber count and sends it to the Nano’s COM port over serial every thousand milliseconds. [brian]’s got the VB app and all the STL files available on IO through Dropbox. Moonwalk past the break to watch Subby get down.
We like that Subby is too focused on celebrating each new subscriber to care about the total number itself. Maybe he could be programmed to do some extra special moves whenever the channel hits a milestone.

yes, but is it racist?
Does the robot lay down and die if the subscriber count decreases?
another faking video with idiot editing and adding stupid useless audio bits and music with high volume!
First of all I don’t get the ‘faking’ part. And you might be true about the editing. It was the first time using a new program. About the music. It is actually quite hard to get some music for your yt video without getting a copyright strike from youtube. They also invented a volume knob. Everybody has to learn you don’t get to be a master editor by making a few videos.
Give it some flags and make it show semaphore to closed caption…
That is actually a great idea!
now if only the youtube subscriptions actually meant something.
Wow every 0.001 kilo second :-) sorry I had to jump on that one
