All of us- designers at Aubergine, did a brainstorming session on what can we make Alexa do. We got interesting inputs on what can potentially be Alexa’s Skills. (Some of them may already exist, but I would still like to put down all the ideas.)
Teach me recipes
How to make tea?
A little more advanced could be:
Be an interpreter / Teach Languages
Alexa could help you learn a new language, or be an interpreter. It could help you to easily communicate with locals when you are travelling to a region with different language.
Help me learn to drive a car
(Alexa) Skills to gain (human) skills
What if Alexa was integrated to your car?
Listen to me, and console me
People who stay alone and need someone to talk to, Alexa can be that friend whom you could have a conversation with. Alexa could also play voice messages from your loved ones during intervals of the day, console you when you are feeling low.
Be my shopping partner
(If only, Alexa had eyes)
Alexa could be your shopping partner !
Provide home remedies, teach yoga, dictate my meditation sessions
Alexa could teach you yoga steps, dictate during your meditation sessions and help you concentrate. Also in situations when you have minor cold and seeking for home remedies, Alexa could suggest.
To-Dos, Checklists & Reminders
Save Our Soul
Be a participant in Brainstorming sessions.
We do a lot of it here at Aubergine. Alexa could participate in these sessions, take notes, throw ideas and even validate them.
How about Alexa had this skill already when we did this session!
She would have given ideas for more skills for herself. That would be quite an inception, isn’t it?
Also, we would love to hear your ideas.
