Collect Sneakers as you Earn XR
We take the team colors from NCAA, NBA, NFL and generate a hexadecimal color palette to design from. Then you can import your sneaker NFT you purchased from the marketplace in the AR scavenger hunt game where you collect the individual pieces from the shoe. Once you collect them all you are eligible to 3d print your custom sneaker.
Our game leverages Saga's unique technologies in new and innovative ways to provide players a creative sneaker collecting experience. Players can customize virtual sneaker NFTs using AI, collect individual sneaker part NFTs, assemble them into complete designs, and ultimately 3D print physical versions of their sneaker creations.
We utilize Saga chainlets in a novel way by mapping each brand onto a dedicated chainlet. This allows for properties and drops unique to that brand. Players can earn tokens by completing tasks on different chainlets, representing different brand worlds within the game.
Generative AI powers the endless virtual sneaker customization. Chainlink VRF provides the randomness needed to create infinite sneaker part variations at scale. AI models are trained on sneaker design principles to produce aesthetically pleasing output. Spheron Network hosts the 3D sneaker assets, enabling players to render and interact with the virtual sneaker NFTs within the game. In the future, players may even be able to upload their own custom sneaker creations made using Spheron.
Real-world color palettes from sports teams ground the AI-generated sneaker designs in reality, adding an element of authenticity.
Overall, our project aims to leverage Saga's infrastructure in creative ways to provide players a new decentralized gaming experience centered around virtual sneaker collecting, customization and physical realization. By combining chainlets, AI, Spheron and an innovative gameplay loop, we hope to offer a compelling and original take on the notion of "sneaker genetics."
Here is how we meet the hackathon requirements with our "Sneaker Genetics" game: Novel Use of Saga Chainlets: We leverage multiple custom Saga chainlets to represent different sneaker brands within the game. Each chainlet mints sneaker NFTs with properties unique to that brand. This allows for more authentic brand differentiation and specialization. Players can complete tasks on different chainlets to earn rewards and unlock sneakers from that brand. Use of Generative AI: We utilize generative AI to randomly spawn new sneaker designs at scale. Chainlink VRF provides the randomness for the AI models to create endless sneaker part variations. AI is trained on real sneaker design principles to generate aesthetically pleasing virtual sneaker styles. Integration of Spheron Network: Spheron Network hosts the 3D sneaker asset manifests and bundles on IPFS. This allows players to fetch and render the virtual sneaker NFTs within the game environment. In the future, players could upload custom 3D sneaker assets they've created using Spheron for inclusion in the game. Creative Game Design: Modeling sneakers as composable NFTs comprised of collectible individual parts offers a novel gaming experience. Combining virtual and physical elements through AR, 3D printing and sneaker NFTs provides a unique twist on digital sneaker culture. Leveraging real-world data like sports team colors grounds the AI-generated sneaker designs in reality. In summary, we innovatively combine chainlets, generative AI, Spheron Network and creative game design to offer players a new way to experience sneaker collecting, customizing and claiming within a decentralized gaming ecosystem.
Create and customize your own unique sneaker NFTs using AI-generated design elements and real-world data. Collect parts from virtual AR scavenger hunts and assemble them into fully customized sneaker designs. Then bring your designs to life by 3D printing physically realized versions of your virtual sneaker creations.
Sneaker Genetics leverages the latest technologies to offer an innovative take on sneaker gaming. Chainlink VRF provides randomness to generate infinite sneaker design possibilities at scale. Spheron Storage hosts the 3D sneaker assets on IPFS for use within the game. And real-world color palettes from sports teams ground the designs in reality.
The game revolves around a central gameplay loop: • Generate - Use Chainlink VRF to spawn random sneaker parts and design elements • Collect - Find individual sneaker part NFTs in an AR scavenger hunt • Assemble - Combine the collected parts into a fully customized sneaker NFT composition • Claim - "Print" your unique sneaker NFT design in the real world via 3D printing By modeling sneakers as composable NFTs, Sneaker Genetics offers a new way to experience sneaker collecting and customization within a game. Through AI, randomness, AR and physical realization, the experience captures the creativity and self-expressiveness of sneaker culture in an innovative and tech-enhanced manner. From designing your AI-generated "sneaker genetics" to claiming the physical product of your virtual creations, Sneaker Genetics seeks to merge the digital and physical worlds of sneaker fandom through an engaging gameplay experience powered by the latest decentralized technologies.
• The core gameplay revolves around customizing and combining sneaker NFTs using randomness, AI and real-world inputs. Players can: Generate random sneaker designs using Chainlink VRF Import existing sneaker NFTs they own from a marketplace Collect individual sneaker part NFTs in an AR scavenger hunt Assemble the collected parts into a fully customized sneaker NFT • Spheron Storage is used to host the 3D sneaker assets on IPFS, making them accessible to players within the game. • Color palettes are generated based on real-world team colors from sports leagues, grounding the designs in reality. • Players can ultimately "print" their customized sneaker NFTs in the real world, bridging the virtual and physical. The key innovative elements of this concept are: • Utilizing randomness, AI and real-world data to generate unique sneaker designs at scale • Modeling sneakers as composable NFTs, where individual parts can be collected, swapped and assembled • Integrating augmented reality to bring the virtual sneakers into the real world • Enabling players to physically realize their customized sneaker NFT designs via 3D printing Overall this has the potential to be a compelling "NFT genetics" experience built around virtual sneakers. The gameplay loop of designing, combining and claiming customized sneaker NFTs - enabled by Saga technologies like Spheron Storage and AI - could provide an enjoyable and novel sneaker gaming experience.
The core loop of the game revolves around generating random sneaker designs using Chainlink VRF, collecting individual sneaker part NFTs, assembling those parts into customized sneaker NFT compositions, and ultimately claiming a physical 3D printed version of your virtual sneaker design.
When players first start, they can generate a random base sneaker design using Chainlink VRF. This spawns a combination of sneaker parts with random colors, materials and specifications. Players can then choose to accept this base design or regenerate for a different starting point. From there, players enter an augmented reality scavenger hunt where they locate and claim individual sneaker part NFTs - representing things like the sole, laces, heel tab, tongue label, etc. These parts have their own specifications that can be combined with a player's base design.
Once players collect all the parts for a single sneaker, they can assemble them into a fully customized sneaker NFT composition registered on the blockchain. This allows players to trade, sell or improve upon their designs.
Finally, players can "claim" their customized sneaker NFT by ordering a physical 3D printed version of the design. This bridges the digital sneaker NFT world with the real world of tangible sneakers.
The game loop is aimed at capturing the joy of designing unique sneaker styles, collecting parts to build them from the ground up, trading designs with other players and ultimately realizing those virtual sneaker creations in physical form. The generative AI, AR integration and physical realization offer novel twists on traditional sneaker gaming concepts.
