Skill name: Fake bloke around the house Skill
In Australia, if you’re a woman living by herself, you’ll often leave a pair of dirty old men’s work boots at the door to make it look like there’s a “man around the house” as a security measure. I’m wondering if there’s an equivalent fake-bloke-around-the-house application for Mycroft.
- As a woman who lives by herself in a neighbourhood with drug activity, I want to use Mycroft as a tool to make it sound like there are other people at home.
- As a women who lives by herself I want to be able to trigger a phrase which then activates recordings of men stating appropriate “around the house phrases”
What third party services, data sets or platforms will the Skill interact with?
None that I can think of
Are there similar Mycroft Skills already?
None for this specific use case, but the Malibu Stacey Skill plays back random recordings; a similar mechanism could be used for this too.
What will the user Speak to trigger the Skill?
Something like “Dave, have you fixed the sink yet” or something that would be an innocuous domestic phrase.
What phrases will Mycroft Speak?
Mycroft would play a recording of a culturally-appropriate voice in response. For instance, in Australia it would be more plausible to have a recording of a “blokey, matey” male voice as this is more threatening to a would-be security risk than a well-spoken British voice.
Or you could say something like “Down, bad dog!” and it could play back a vicious barking noise.
What Skill Settings will this Skill need to store?
Possibly links to recordings of voices
I’m not sure how viable / what the demand is here for this Skill, but it’s definitely one I would use.
