Bud.e is a DIY and IOT little friend developed at SALTCAKE which embody social networks of its owner. Those data influence its emotions which allows owners of Bud.e to get an idea of the activities of their social networks at a glance. I developed different parts of the robot's personality through an algorithm which combines specific data to impact its mood and character. When owners connect the robot for the first time, it analyses data to adjust its behavior based on the current state of social networks. Similar to a Tamagotchi, you need to take care of Bud.e but this time by being active on social networks. You can directly interact with Bud.e or look at its mood on a NodeJs web application.
