Announcing the winner of the FOAM API Prize @ETHNewYork


#1

It has been an exciting week for the Foamspace team at ETH New York with tons of high energy and innovative minds hacking on projects and ideas for FOAM through our workshops, talks and demos- which will be share shortly.

First, announcing the winner of the FOAM API Prize: French Toast Kitty

We have a new way to interact with your CryptoKitty in the real-world! This app allows you to render a CryptoKitty on a map as well as fetch the weather.

Inspiration

Cryptokitties have a lot of ©attributes and abilities, but something you can’t do is bring them with you or have them interact with you using real world data. We were inspired by the French Toast Alert, where weather dictates what somebody does. We tried to get the Cryptokitty to encourage people to enjoy their kitties in different atmospheres depending on the weather.

What it does

French Toast Kitty is an application that gives you a variety of ways to interact with your cat token by providing things to do depending on the weather. We wanted to come up with ways on how to interact with your digital goods other than buying and bidding.

A user logs in using Torus where they insert their kitty number and are shown a map of their surrounding area with their kitty on their location. Users can then travel with their pets to local points of interest which are queried from the FOAM api. Weather is also displayed over the area to aid the user in choosing locations.

How we built it

We use Torus to log the user in with google credentials. We use Cryptokitties API to get a kitty given the user’s input. We use Chainlink to pull weather data from the weather service. We use FOAM to find points of interest.
