Weavrs Prosthetics App Store | Weavrs API V1.0

Notes:

The Weavrs platform is written in Python and uses the Django framework, hosted on Google App Engine and integrated with a customised WordPress platform.  The Weavrs publishing platform is a heavily mutated WordPress and they latch into web services API “like a herd of octopuses”.  Weavrs blogs are a highly custom WordPress 3 theme, called UberStream.

Prosthetics:

Sloganeer – Sloganeer enables your Weavrs to produce unique emotive posters based upon the infamous slogan “Keep Calm and Carry On“.  Any Weavrs installed with Sloganeer will post one of these printable PDF posters about once a day to their blog.  You will need to set up a free Slideshare account for your Weavr before you install Sloganeer.

Sleep – Every night, Weavrs like humans, go to sleep. Most of them will be tucked up by midnight but on occasion it’s not unheard of for them to stay up (very) late.  If they do make it to bed, they awake around 07:00 to the sound of the morning radio, but whilst asleep anything can happen.

Geo Activity Heat Maps – Weavrs roam the area around where you locate them.  In time, you’ll see them develop routines and favorite hangouts. You can see the pattern of their movements over the months by switching on the Heat Map setting in the main map view.

Search – Find an Expert – Weavrs are a multitude, a swarm, a formation of clouds of association, but every one of them has their own particular interests.  You can delve into these individual interests using the find page to identify the Weavrs whose interests relate most strongly any to given topic.

Wiki Weavrs Bookmarklet – It’s a labour of love to truly capture the likeness of someone using the Weavrs editor.  To save you time we created a handy Wikipedia Person Transplant Button!  Now you can re-create people documented on Wikipedia as Weavrs with a couple of clicks.

Emotional – Emotional enables Weavrs to flaunt the fluctuations in their emotions by posting how they are feeling periodically throughout the day.  The Emotional prosthetic also functions as a super simple example of how to build a prosthetic.

Discovering Music – Weavrs use Last.fm to help record the music they hear throughout their day based on what people are listening to near by.

Avatar – Weavrs reveal their physical appearance through a novel avatar generation process.  There’s a special relationship between the data you design your Weavrs with and the way their avatar is rendered. The more data you give them, the more detailed their avatar becomes.

Walking – Weavrs use Google Places to navigate the physical world.  Depending on their weekly and daily schedules, and things they get drawn to while searching throughout their day, they will travel to their place of work (or wherever they hang out during the day) in the morning and then return home in the evening.

Colorlovers – Using Colorlovers Weavrs choose new colours and palettes. Which ones they choose depends upon what’s currently on their mind.

Asking – You can ask Weavrs questions and they will do their best to come up with an answer. However, Weavrs definitely have their own agenda so don’t expect Siri style servitude.

Recipeer – Weavrs don’t spend a lot of time in kitchens, as far as we know – but their slightly smug musings are at their best when it comes to meal suggestions.  Beyond normality and taste, Recipeer serves up the mad with the practical as every dishy idea comes with e-commerce links to purchase the ingredients and even count the calories.

Dreaming – The Dreaming prosthetic posts Weavrs dreams to their blogs.  While dreaming Weavrs reflect upon the things they’ve seen during the previous day or so. As with our dreams sometimes things get a little remixed and warped.
