There are two book series that I somehow always wanted but also feared to get a movie version of.

For "The Dark Tower" series by Stephen King this wait seems to over soon. And from what I've read it's actually more of a sequel to the series, which might be an interesting twist considering the real ending of the last book in the series. So this might actually turn out to be good.

For the "Necroscope" the wait is likely to go on indefinitely, and rumours about a Necroscope movie are way older than 10 years now. The website http://www.necroscope4d.com/ hasn't seen any updates in years either. Let's just hope that whoever designed this website isn't involved with the movie in any way.

api-ai-interface

I started playing with API.AI a while ago (because of Google Actions), and thought it would be nice to have an easy way to include a conversational agent in a website, so I started creating a Polymer Element to do just that.

https://github.com/Scarygami/api-ai-interface

This is actually a collection of elements.

<api-ai-input> is a voice-enabled input element that can very well be used outside of API.AI context as well.

<api-ai-api> interacts with the API.AI API sending and receiving messages. This element is only very basic at the moment. The API has a lot of interesting feature included that are not handled at the moment at all.

<api-ai-interface> puts everything together to have a simple plug-and-play component to place in a website.

The element is very much work in progress at the moment (as are most my projects), but it works to hook it up to your API.AI agent for some basic conversational actions. Expect more updates on this element next year.

Live demo:

Too restrictive to be used as a search bar alternative, more like a website sidebar addition

A new toy to play with for Christmas, and that I'm planning to do some coding with using the Web Bluetooth API once I find some time.

I already did some coding work in the past with the "old" Sphero using the Bluetooth API of Chrome Packaged Apps:

Fortune Teller

If you have a Google Home device, you can use my ingenious Fortune Teller to get your predictions for 2017.

In the backend Fortune Teller is a very sophisticated API.AI agent with a total of two intents.

One welcome-intent to greet you and tell you what Fortune Teller can to.

And one more intent that takes your question and uses a very complicated algorithm to randomly choose among a couple of possible answers.

The most difficult part was probably creating all the images and descriptions necessary to get the Action through the review process.

I did some more experiments and demo projects with Google Actions (with and without API.AI) that have some actual code behind them as well, so I will have some more things to show you next year (according to Fortune Teller).

Warning This book starts off innocently with things like Morse and Braille only to sneakily teach you more about writing machine code in assembly language than you will ever need.

So yeah, I really like this book :)

The best (organic) ice cream you can get in Vienna. Also has a lot of vegan options. Make sure to try elderflower (Holunder) and pumpkin seed oil (Kürbiskernöl) which are my favourites. They also have a kiosk at the Schönbrunn zoo which is a nicer place to eat an ice cream in my opinion.

Nice and clean rooms, friendly staff and great breakfast (they have a wafflemaker!) Only complaint I have is that my room had the next building directly in front of the window, so it was dark all day long, but I didn't spend much day-time hours inside anyway.
