Transform daily boring tasks, lessons to interesting ones with Alexa!

Build an Alexa game that helps consumers to learn 1) a new language (E.g.- Duolingo for Alexa), or, 2) a new hobby (E.g.- how to sing?), or, 3) get in shape (gamify fitness), or, 4) manage their time.

Your consumer can be:

  • A 25-40 year old woman, or man, who uses apps like Duolingo in their cab journey on their way back from office, or when they are bored at home, to learn a new language

  • A 25-40 year old woman, or man, who wants to learn a new hobby like how to sing, learn how to turn table as a DJ. Alexa already has skills to teach consumers how to play the guitar, so make something unique.

  • A 25-40 year old woman, or man, who doesn't like exercising, and your interesting game can motivate them to exercise to earn points, compete against their others on leader-boards etc.

  • A 25-40 year old woman, or man, who wants a fun organizer, not the old fuddy duddy note taker, or reminder/ organizer

The idea is to gamify boring tasks, lessons, and use Alexa's personality to make them interesting; eventually help consumers form good habits
