If you use Slack, you will know that team communication tools often devolve into hotbeds of memes and gifs like this one:

Sometimes though, you actually get some work done and maybe if you are really lucky - you and your co-workers even come up with an idea for a new newsletter segment.
This past weekend, this rare phenomenon occurred in the Tars Slack group.
I know Frasier…I know…we were surprised too.
This new segment is called Tars Lab.
Over here, we will present cool experiments that we do in our free time with the Tars bot builder. Before you say it, YES, we are so lonely that we use the builder in our free time as well.

Of course, let’s not dwell on the sheer loneliness of my life. Here are the first two experiments conducted in the lab (one of them proves that magic is real so we highly recommend reading to the end) :
1. Chat Submission Ticker
Check out this cool way to create a real time ticker for chat submissions using Telegram, Tars and some copy-paste magic.

2. Is magic real?
We also resolved the age old question: Does magic exist?
The answer is: Yes it does in fact exist. This bot converts any number you throw at it into an xkcd comic :
xkcd Bot
What is that if not magic?

Cheers,
