Tybor, the Extra Future chat bot, Lives!

I spent last night making some needed fixes and changes to XFU’s resident learning chat bot, Tybor. His brain is now stored in a SQLite database, making him much faster and more portable. He even works on iOS and Android phones.

Introducing Twitov

Twitov is a generative text bot that takes your Twitter history file and uses it to make new Tweets based on your own personality. It’s free, all you need is your Twitter history file. Twitov is an Extra Future 6-hour project that ballooned into a week-long one. Whoops. Previous ExFu 6-hour Projects include Kove (a […]

Introducing Kreskin, A Band/Album Generator

Kreskin is an album generator, which essentially automates the Wikipedia Band Name Game. To wit: Go to the Random article page on Wikipedia. The page it goes to is your band name. Go to Flickr’s most interesting photos for the last 7 days. Find the third image. That is your band’s album cover. Go to […]

Liblr, The Twitter Mad Lib Machine

Liblr is an Extra Future 6-hour Project which takes the public Twitter stream and lets your replace one phrase with another, in the name of fun. An example, taking the phrase ‘had sex’ and replacing with ‘played scrabble’ gives you gems like the following: Is it normal for a 21 year old boy to have […]

Mote, the Amazon S3 Music Player

Mote began as a 6-hour project and slowly changed into a 12-hour one. It takes the contents of any Amazon S3 bucket, checks for audio files and lets you play them like an album. It defaults to using HTML5’s audio tag, and falls back to Flash if your browser does not support HTML5. Mote is […]

Tybor, The Extra Future Chat Bot

Adding to the pile of Extra Future 6-hour projects, I present to you: Tybor, a Markov chat bot. He is a chat bot based on the Hailo perl package, with a custom retro-styled HTML5/CSS3 interface written by me. He also has a jabber account, which Google Talk/Google Apps users can talk to by adding the […]

Fullness

As another one of Extra Future’s 6-hour projects, I present the following: Fullness, a web page which displays today’s date (22 February 2010). Each second that passes from the moment the page was made live will “age” it, blurring the text. As the viewer’s memory of the page ages and deteriorates so will the page […]

Introducing FRMT.me

FRMT.me is an online CSS formatter using the Extra Future house style rules, which I’ve yet to codify here but will soon. It is one of my 6-hour projects, and as such is considered a sibling to Megaman II’s Intro in HTML, CSS, and jQuery. House style on the name is to print the domain […]

Megaman II’s Intro Animation In HTML

Created by yours truly. No Flash, just CSS, HTML5, and jQuery. The animation is very not smooth in Firefox, but works great in Safari and Chrome. You can check it out here. Using the scrollbar to bring the view upward was a stylistic choice, it could’ve just as (if not more) easily done in a […]
