Their pitch beat out hundreds of rivals and won the grand prize at the IBM Watson Mobile Developer’s Challenge. The prize was the access to use the Watson supercomputer via a mobile app. The app streams a child’s questions over the cloud to fetch responses from Watson. The smarts are all in the cloud, while the toy is very simple as a Wi-Fi-connected conduit.

“We use Watson as the back-end knowledge base, and we gave the creature a grumbly-Cookie-Monstery-Muppety voice,” Coolidge said in an interview with VentureBeat. “Kids seem to enjoy it. All of the magic is in the technology.”
