The science fiction comedy, what else, has been produced with Rosina Sound.
“In this pilot, you’re actively playing a part in the story, using your own voice – we wanted to make it feel like you’re having a genuine, direct interaction with the other characters in the piece. We haven’t come across any other interactive stories like this on voice devices, and we’re excited to see how people respond to it,” explained BBC producer Henry Cooke.
The BBC has taken the approach of letting listeners use their own voice to interact, rather than adopt the previous approach that was akin to a Choose Your Own Adventure Book.
Initially the concept will be released for Amazon Alex and Google Home, but later the BBC wants to explore similar devices including Microsoft & Harman/Kardon’s Invoke speaker and Apple’s HomePod.
