Brainstorm Buddy

*Update: I made this project about a month before ChatGPT came out, I guess I was on to something lol. It doesn't work quite as well, but I am impressed with how well it works after using ChatGPT!* A GPT-3 experiment I made to simulate a knowledgeable friend to brainstorm with. The AI is designed to ask you questions about the ideas you present it, in order to challenge your assumptions and create better ideas. I've found that my best ideas come when talking to friends, making ideas by myself is tougher. But I can't always talk to a buddy to brainstorm, so I made this! It works surprisingly well, I honestly wasn't expecting it to perform as well as it does. Give it a try , and let me know how it works for you.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I could have made it with a simple UI, but emulating an Iphone sounded really fun in the moment, so here we are! Really made me appreciate how intricate IOS UI and animations are. Took me longer than I thought it would to recreate the messages app, but it was fun using framer motion and css animations to make the user experience feel familiar.

  1. There is a ton of UX work involved with making a UI look and work as simple as Apple's IOS.
  2. Framer motion makes animating the web so much fun, it might be my favorite JS library.
  3. This project only took me a day to make, credit to OpenAI for making an incredible API that makes AI easy.
  4. Brainstorming with a buddy is way more fun :)
