Ideastormers today took Alexa Echo and ventured into products and ideas – from crazy to weird to exciting.
There was one idea that Alexa Echo should have Legs/Wheels so that it can travel wherever we go. Remember the Hutch puppy Ad – where a puppy follows a small boy and the ad says Hutch network follows whereever you go?
- Audio and min colors are boring. We need to control the colors, shape, texture of the echo and may be a dumb LED on top.
2. Limitation as a skill – Alexa tells me when am crossing my limits – when am drinking, when am discussing, and the options of me going out of limits are endless
3. Hidden assistant : a miniature Alexa echo that gets inside a key chain and unlocks with my voice with the features
a. control the various devices from AC. to light to gates – speak with my keychain and it talks to the other devices
b. gives me facts, and data in my meetings to get unfair advantage over the other person (if i use my mobile i can be seen as distracted/rude, with keychain no one thinks am getting information ;))
c. Locate yourself – A common issue with men is the search for the keys. This keychain which is voice authentication and control solves the problem when i say – Alexa Locate Yourself. Sound or location coordinates can be generated to get to the device
