We Can Code IT featured at Cleveland Mini Maker Faire

We Can Code IT founders Mel McGee and Shana Mysko were featured at the Cleveland Mini Makers Faire. The pair showed children how to program their own chat bots using a program developed by their sister company, imageNation Web Experts, called Zoe Bot.   Zoe Bot is an online, interactive, artificial intelligence application that will chat with a user.  The kids were able to make their own chat bots as well that would respond to them.   Mel demonstrated Skeletorbot, her artificial intelligence chatting skeleton, and showed kids how she created it. Skeletorbot chatted with visitors as they passed by, hopefully not creeping too many of them out. He was originally conceived in the early 00’s as a pet-project by Mel for one of her Halloween parties. Mel and Shana also had a Google Glass demonstration that allowed attendees to try out the wearable computer as well as an augmented reality station. Watch the video for a sample of the fun!
