Back to Parent


When first trying to come up with ideas for a chatbot, I initially thought of the tomigatchi. As a kid you would take care of it and it would be your companion that you would basically have as a virtual pet. During this project that was my inspiration behind SubWoofer the dogbot. I wanted to create a simple yet fun bot to interact with that would simulate talking and playing with a dog. I thought this would be a great and fun way to use different APIs to have the dog be a friend and helper.

A target audience I was thinking about would be kids, because many want pets, but many do not have them. And let's be honest kids these days love playing with their parents phones whether its apps or something else. This would be a great way to distract the kids while giving them their longed for pet.
