We were inspired by Shakespeare's literature. The prose of the past has been long forgotten. It's finally time, to bring the community together with the power of rhyme.

What it does

Battle your friends in a game of wits, who shall be the first to call it quits. Welcome to a multiplayer game that automatically scores your raps to determine who is objectively the best poet!

How we built it

We built it with our hearts and souls. We used for speech-to-text to transcribe the raps real-time. In terms of actually determining the scoring of the rhymes, we built on top of the Datamuse word analysis API. The real-time multiplayer aspect was implemented via Web Sockets.

Challenges we ran into

We had control over neither Rev.AI nor the Datamuse API so we ran into troubles with timeouts and deployment.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

This is the shortest hackathon we've done but we've managed to accomplish a working prototype ahead of schedule.

What we learned

We learned a lot about Web Sockets and asynchronous programming with Javascript!

What's next for Rap Scorer

More control over the upper bounds of the timeouts and deployment for easy access on various devices. More animations.
