This project built by David Schwartz and myself.
Botnik Studios is a comedy/satire website which uses a predictive text keyboard to generate hilarious documents based on some prior source, like television scripts, books, advertisements, etc.
What it does
Twitch Plays Botnik is a streaming tool that allows an irc chat to input word selections to a streamed predictive text generator. Going to the twitch link allows the stream chat as a whole to create their own funny, perhaps non-sensical stories.
How we built it
The project we forked from had a working IRC bot, and we adjusted the controls, commands, stream set-up, etc.
Challenges we ran into
There were problems all along the way - turns out using python to press shift is hard.
What's next for Twitch Plays Botnik
A better UI, more commands, and more interesting things to do with the generated text.
