There’s been a lot of talk over the past few years of smart homes. Using small devices, many people have transformed their home and menial, daily tasks are completed with ease. However, while these devices help, our homes don’t feel any more advanced. Until now. Introducing L.U.C.Y.
L.U.C.Y. is a virtual personal assistant for your home. Using the latest technology, L.U.C.Y. becomes a part of your home to make it truly intelligent and to make your life more efficient.
Imagine entering your home and using just your voice to complete actions. With L.U.C.Y., you can. The device, looking like a flat screen computer monitor, can hear and understand you and your family. You can ask, “Lucy, will it rain tomorrow?” and hear a reply in just seconds. Commands such as starting a playlist, turning on the A/C, or even making reservations at your favorite restaurant are understood and completed instantly, just like a personal assistant. But, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
L.U.C.Y. isn’t just a full-HD touchscreen display. L.U.C.Y. can also use its built-in HD camera to recognize the faces in your family and therefore better serve each of you. Speaking both English and German, L.U.C.Y. is also able to learn new actions and processes that you’d like to automate. The L.U.C.Y. app enables you to be connected to your home from anywhere.
With an easy setup over Wi-Fi, L.U.C.Y. will be automatically updated for free forever. These updates include new apps as well as capabilities. The apps currently available incorporate everything from utilities such as the heating or air conditioning to entertainment and even include your favorites such as Facebook and Instagram.
While you can create a custom dashboard such as the time or weather, L.U.C.Y. can also display works of art or even entire photo albums when not in use. With this, L.U.C.Y. will always fit in with the décor in your home.
Available in three sizes ranging from 17 inches to 27 inches, L.U.C.Y. comes in your choice of a black, white, silver, or handmade wooden frame. Live on Kickstarter, the hardware for L.U.C.Y. is being finalized and will ship to backers in December 2016. You can reserve your own virtual personal assistant for a donation of €358 for the 17-inch version while the 27-inch version is €681.
With your very own personal assistant, which tasks would you have completed first?
