Inspiration

I remembered playing with my tamagotchi as a child.

What it does

You perform various pet care actions and it responds! Take Dazzle for walk, feed her, etc.

How I built it

I used the Alexa skill kit and lambda to process requests, then used Dynamo behind the scenes to keep track of pet health.

Challenges I ran into

Tweaking the algorithms to add and subtract the right amount for different actions took some time.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

It's a pretty decent digital pet simulation, and it has a few easter eggs.

What I learned

It's easy to develop skills for Alexa. Without a full graphical UI to build you can move very fast.

What's next for Digital Pet

Who knows? May a digital dog show?
