I am working on autonomous behaviors to present at the upcoming Narrative Summit. Here’s a video of some wiglet eye-gaze features I’ve been working on:

Hey wiggy peeps,
I was recently interviewed on the Versatilist Podcast, by Patrick O’Shea.
In this podcast, Patrick and I kick around lots of ideas on artificial life, artificial intelligence, and augmented reality. I describe my ongoing efforts to develop a kind of self-animated character that can thrive in our highly augmented future.
Here’s an article on Wiggle Planet from the Rivertown Report of the Argus Courier (an online Petaluma magazine):
The Square Panda Playset is an accessory to the iPad that utilizes physical letters and an electronic playset to wirelessly connect to the iPad and engage children in multi-sensory games that explore phonics and basic reading skills.
Our game demo titled “Monster Dance Party” was included in presentations with Square Panda’s release at CES 2016 in Las Vegas.
Check out the video below for a full tour of Monster Dance Party:
This project was a lot of fun, and we’re looking to do more! If you’re interested in developing innovative games and apps that leverage big data with emotionally-resonant dynamic characters that truly have a life of their own, we’d love to talk with you.

Mutation can be fun! (Especially if you’re a wiglet). Tiny Santa and Elfhead wanted to hang out while these wiglets do the mutation dance. Don’t mind them.
Here’s a video:
Stay tooned for a cool announcement coming in the new year (hint: our wiglets will be featured in a kid’s learning toy).
Happy New Year from all of us at the planet that wiggles.
