ANNDART stands for Artificial Neural Network Dot Art. It's a toy I created testing an artificial Brain framework. Notice I say "Brain" because I avoid saying it's a proper neural network. Proper ANNs are supposed to have learning and training capabilities and are more strictly defined mathematically. Mine doesn't have that because my intention is to use it with random mutations in genetic algorithms with natural-artificial selection.

My physical prototyping kit
This box was a present from some friends who filled it with lots of tokens, bits, paper, cards and some different things useful to make physical prototypes for board or digital games. Since then I have added some more content on my own and it is always ready to help me represent or test a new idea. It's a great tool for every game designer!
Whe I read the random words: Gnome Curtain Graduate. I instantly imagined this. The strange little man dancing in the red curtains room in the tv show Twin Peaks, but with a graduation hat. Simple.
The three random words are: Sparrow, cry and publicity. The outcome: this cheap try to get to your heart.

The three random words are Loom, guitar and observation. I mixed this image of a class observing of a version of the game Loom featuring a guitar instead of a magic musical distaff.

Random words are: Vote, Decorator and Word. After thinking hard I imagined a feature in Office Word to upvote or downvote style decorations. How many downvotes would get Comic sans based styles?
And yep, the arrows are from reddit.
