A still from the Noriginals team’s prototype, “Poetastr”

The Noriginals team takes home the POV Hackathon 5 Participants’ Choice!

About the ProjectNoriginals: The Art of Uncreativity‘s “Poetastr” is an automated, rule-based poetry creation tool. Sourcing content from the twitter stream, it allows users to specify lyrical forms. Based on the criteria, poems are generated and streamed to the user as they are created.

Explore the prototypes from all POV Hackathon 5 projects, coming soon on the POV Blog. POV Hackathon switches coasts next weekend, from Saturday, May 17, 2014 to Sunday, May 18, 2014 in Los Angeles.
