STAGE 1 / DREAM STATE
Create original abstract works of art with FLUF World's favourite AI spider artists, Thingies.

Art, working

Meet Thingies! A new generation of intelligent digital avatars, here to drive the creative AI revolution.

Each Thingie is a 3D game-ready avatar, with a unique abstract fur pattern, generated by an Altered State Machine (ASM) AI.

But Thingies aren't just works of art themselves, they're art working.

Each Thingie connects to Altered State Machine's community-driven AI protocol, and is able to create and mint its own generative art as original NFTs.

Grab yours and start creating today!

A CURIOUS CASE

Since Thingies crawled from the mycelium networks, some time ago, they haven’t quite been themselves! FLUF World’s favourite furry artists appear trapped in a Dreamland, with the artistic expression of their visions from this realm few and far between.

A conundrum indeed!

A MIRACULOUS DISCOVERY

WHEN IT SEEMED HOPE WAS ALL BUT LOST, THE ENIGMATIC PROFESSOR SPARKENSKI HAD ANOTHER STARTLING REVELATION. HIS ROBO THINGIE HAD FOUND IT’S WAY INTO A MYCELIUM SAMPLE IN HIS WORKSHOP, AND PRODUCED A DAZZLING MURAL UNLIKE ANYTHING HE HAD EVER SEEN!

COULD MYCELIUM BE THE KEY TO UNLOCKING THINGIES LATENT CREATIVITY?

A CONDUIT TO THE DREAMLANDS… BRILLIANT!

JUST LIKE THAT, MOON ROCKS WERE BORN.

SIMPLY HEAD TO OUR SECURE ONLINE STORE, PURCHASE MOON ROCKS WITH $ASTO AND YOU’LL HAVE A STEADY SUPPLY OF MOON ROCKS TO MAXIMISE YOUR THINGIES MASTERPIECE POTENTIAL!

FAQ

Too abstract?
Here's some more info.
Where can I buy a Thingie?

Thingies can be bought on NFT platforms like Opensea and Looks Rare.

I've heard Thingies create artworks for their owners. How does that work?

There are two steps involved in the process (once you've connected to the Underground and selected your Thingie). First, you ask your Thingie to create the artwork for you. Second, you need to decide whether you like the artwork enough to mint it as part of the official NFT collection.

How much does it cost?

It costs one Moon Rock to create an artwork and one Moon Rock to mint it as part of the official collection. Moon Rocks can be purchased from the Underground for $2 each.

What are Moon Rocks and where can I get them?

They're Sparkenski’s famous Moon Rocks! These tasty snacks are made with the goodness of real mycelium, plus essential vitamins and minerals for a taste your Thingies will love. Feed your Thingie 1 Moon Rock to get their creative juices flowing and have them start painting. Happy with the art? Feed your Thingie 1 more Moon Rock to have your art minted and delivered to your wallet.


You can purchase them from the Underground.

Did I hear something about free Moon Rocks?

Moon Rocks were airdropped to eligible Thingie-containing wallets at the time of our pre-launch snapshot. You will see your balance updated in the Underground.

What currency can I use to buy Moon Rocks?

All payments will be in $ASTO at first, the currency that powers Altered State Machine (our sister company that specialises in AI-powered NFTs). The Mycelium token will be a secondary payment option once it launches.

Can I transfer my Moon Rocks to another wallet?

Yes! Interact with the Transfer function in the Underground Store, and you can enter the receiving wallets address and the number of Moon Rocks you'd like to transfer from your connected wallet.

What determines the style of art that my Thingie creates?

The style of art that your Thingie creates will be determined by its backpack. Furthermore, styles will change over time as we release different stages of utility.

Will every Thingie be able to create every type of utility?

No. A Thingie’s backpack type will determine the types of utility it is capable of producing.

Is there a limit to the number of artworks that can be minted?

The first stage of utility is unlimited in terms of the number of artworks that can be minted to its collection. But all future stages will be limited edition.

If I own multiple Thingies can they create art at the same time?

Yes they can.

I’ve heard that my Thingie will need to rest after minting an artwork. Is that for real?!

Yes! If you choose to mint the artwork to the official collection, your Thingie will need to rest for a while. However, if you choose to discard it, your Thingie will be able to create new work immediately.

How long does my Thingie need to rest for?

The rest period will be 1 day after its first mint, 2 days after its second, 4 days after its third. The rest period keeps doubling until it gets to 32 days at which point it is capped forever.

If I’m buying a Thingie, how can I check its rest period?

This information is now included in the Underground. Search for the Thingie you want to buy, select it, and then expand the trait list section. You will see how much is left of the current rest period (if the Thingie is resting) and what its next rest period will be.

Is there a way to reduce the rest period?

Yes, if you're desperate for your Thingie to create more art, you will be able to pay to eliminate whatever time is left of the rest period (at a cost of one Moon Rock per day that remains). This feature will become especially useful when a limited edition utility occurs.

How long do I have to make a decision before minting or discarding my thingies artwork?

There is no time limit to making that decision. But once you choose to mint, you will need to follow through within one week. If you fail to process the mint within the week, the artwork will be automatically discarded.

If I don't mint the artwork, can I still download it?

Yes, you will be able to download a high resolution file of any generated piece of art (the option will exist as part of the process flow). If you're going to discard the artwork, make sure you download it first!

Where can I use the art?

Anywhere you want.

How will my Thingies' utility evolve over time?

Thingies are only just setting out on their creative journey, with stages of evolving utility planned in the near future. Today, we are at Stage 1, where your Thingies are slowly being roused from their dream state to share sporadic visions of the Dreamlands with you. Stages 2 and 3 will bring even more creative freedom, artistic diversity and exciting utility to your favourite furry artists.

  1. Stage 1 - Dream State:
    Art produced is an unconscious reflection of the Thingies’ dream
  2. Stage 2 - Awakened:
    Will allow for increased curation of art via the introduction of user prompts and the exploration of new art styles
  1. Stage 3 - Enhanced:
    The next stage of evolution in your AI artists, with greater stylistic variation and utility still to be announced
