BumbleBot

BumbleBot is a Twitter bot created using Node.js and Processing to post images of procedurally generated bees.

Originally written as a standalone Processing sketch to explore insect anatomy, it continues to attempt to generate accurate bee structures (its bumblebees have slight anatomical variations based on gender; see the antennae, hind legs and abdomen segments for example).

Future enhancements will include interactivity and procedurally generated names based on colour, gender, etc., as well as generating other types of bee (i.e. honey and solitary bees).

BumbleBot is open source, licensed under the MIT license.
