Based on the popular TV show Rick and Morty, we decided to create a virtual assistant adapting one of the characters, Snowball (AKA snuffles).
What it does
Snowball accepts commands by voice communication. Most of the stock commands are designed to help you with everyday task such as:
- Defining words
- informs you of global news
- and more
How we built it
We used IBM-Watson to create a conversational environment using Text to speech and Speech to text APIs.
Using the Unity3d Engine we created the UI with different animations and sprites from Rick and Morty.
We used other APIs to for different commands such as:
- Yahoo news
Challenges we ran into
Out biggest challenge was making sure a commands wasn't being executed multiple times.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are super hyped on how fluent and easy the app is.
What's next for Snowball
We plan to add more stock commands and hope to get the code to other developers to see what cool stuff they could create.
