Pocket Oracle

The Pocket Oracle was a pocket-sized esoteric advice generator. At the press of a button the device randomly assembles a string of text generated from a handmade API, resulting in one of a possible of 203,112,000 unique answers. After having downloading the JSON, the device can also work offline. The advice is often nonsensical, and occasionally profound. The cryptic and mysterious messages are meant to be interpreted by the individual user. Some choice epiphanies from the device included:

“Maybe you should question the advice re life. Fate is sealed.”

“You have to flee your smile before death. Are you ready?”

“I know! Just think your dad into death. That’s the solution”
