Try it!

Inspiration

Imagine you can write, but not read, but you can still hear. Also you have no internet connection and no text-to-speech program installed. This will help you.

We are targeting a niche market that is not represented by today's tech community. Try it by texting +1 (805) MATH PLS! That's +1 (805) 628-4757.

What it does

Ever needed to solve math quickly and didn't want to use your head or a calculator? Simply text a math query to +1 (805) MATH PLS and receive the result in an easily understandable format.

How we built it

We used a Node.js script that receives math via Twilio and calls the user and uses TTS to speak back the answer.

Challenges we ran into

Allergies and finding out that a TwiML cannot respond to a text with a call directly. Finding enough people that fit out target demographic.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Making a useful service using text messages. Finding a specific enough market.

What we learned

Using the Twilio API.

What's next

World domination of course!
