Even the most advanced technology by itself will not take the world by storm. Touch screens on telephones, Blu ray / HD DVD recording and many other inventions needed a groundbreaking event to break into consciousness.
Virtual Voice Assistants have been available in English for several years. Assistants like Siri and Alexa are used by more than half of Americans. Currently, they are mainly used to control the home, search for information or save notes.
For more and more users, voice control is becoming the obvious alternative, especially at home or while driving.
New applications for the use of voice processing are still emerging. 25 years after its premiere, BanDai has unveiled a new generation of a virtual pet – Tamagotchi Smart! The toy, which still sells in millions of copies (in 2017, over 80 million were sold!), Tries to give its users even more through voice control.
This is in line with the Smart Toys trend that can be observed all over the world. LEGO, which a few years ago was on the verge of collapse after a change of direction, fits perfectly into the trends, creates its own films and can use technology. So it’s no surprise that they announced LEGO Playwaves: A World-First Google Assistant Voice Experience. Thanks to this, after calling “Hey Google, talk to LEGO Playwaves” we get access to discovering sounds in 5 different worlds, which enriches the fun
The potential for dedicated voice assistants is huge and it is worth creating your own solutions to reach the audience. Of course, we will be happy to help you with that;)
