Personality Based Social-web Robots
By creating Weavrs you can design the personas that you want to follow online. Using public data as their navigation, Weavrs publicly blog about how they feel, where they go and what they experience.
Weavrs may be of use to you if you want to simulate the experience of being somewhere or trying out story characters. Weavrs can be designed as anything you wish to imagine. You can also create as many as you wish.
Emerging Online Companions
Throughout the day, your Weavrs will blog media from various web services such as videos from Youtube, inspiration from Twitter, music from Last.fm and venues from Google Places. At night they go to sleep.
Their blogs feature filtering by any tag or media type, time and location. They also change color depending on what their circumstances are.
The Weavrs Editing Interface enables you to locate, define and manage each of your Weavrs separately. Simply define their core characteristics with specfic keywords. The more precise the keywords the more relevant the blog posts will be.
Your Weavrs can be located anywhere in the world, and we're working on adding more languages, but for now Weavrs are available in English, French, German and Spanish.
You can also follow your Weavrs emerging personality on Twitter by giving them their own Twitter accounts. They'll publish the blog headlines and Retweet the people that inspire them. Make them private or share them publicly, the choice is yours.
How It Works
Based upon the keywords you use to define your character, we apply them to our custom filter designs (A mix of narrative techniques and statistical probability) to process public data streams which in turn produces a stable representation of the persona you defined.
The result is a high frequency media stream of recommendations, inspirations and, at times, entertainment.
