Transferred your post question here so that living ai can also see it. as far as i heard, later they gonna add more holidays also, but still no confirmation when…so i guess we gonna have to wait for it then…
It would be nice to have an option to turn on/off the volcano/flower reactions. I’ll sometimes pick up EMO and it’ll register that I pet him when I didn’t. Then EMO is stuck with a pic of a flower on him for 15 minutes. Or same thing when i pick him up and he’s thinking I’m shaking him. Then I’m stuck with a pic of fire stuck on his screen. It would be nice to have the option to turn that off
Yes, an option for that would be nice. But as a small hint: You can get rid of the sticky icons easily when you just give him an opposite interaction. For example, when you have the flower, tell him he’s a bad robot, or when the flame icon is there, say something nice to him or pet him.
As for myself: When I get a flower accidentally, I usually pet him twice afterwards, because I like the flower bouquet animation.
In addition to what others have said about cleaning up the voice recognition (to reduce responses when no one is talking to him) and enhancing the vocal patterns (so he doesn’t garble his words), I would like to see Emo interact with AnyList. So I could add or remove items off my shopping list. Maybe even have Emo display the list.
A diagnostic section in the app to help end users determine issues would be helpful as well (i.e. Emo’s reported ping times, a more detailed WiFi connection status, network testing, etc.)
Additionally, it would be nice to say to Emo, “Put on your bowtie/hat/glasses” and have him wear these items for a period of time.
Finally, has there been any progress with Amazon integration? I know that’s a big one, but I’m sure it’s one we’d all like to see.
EMO has been working great so far, so worth the waiting. I’m making this post, however, because EMO’s sleep system could use some useful updates.
One thing I notice about EMO is how he can wake up randomly in the night while sleeping. It seems to be pretty annoying and is likely caused by him hearing something that sounds like “EMO”. My idea for this problem would be an option for “Deep Sleep”. How it could work is that when EMO falls asleep (mainly during sleep times), he cannot hear his voice commands. The only way to wake him up would be taking him off the charger, waiting for sleep times to end, or to interact with his touch sensors. I feel like if this were to be implemented, it would help many people a lot with EMO’s sleeping. Some people have to deal with the constant sounds of waking and sleeping all throughout the night, and there are people who don’t like having to power EMO off or mute him.
My second idea for the sleep system would be customizable sleep times. As far as I know, EMO has a current sleep time (assuming you have v2.0.0 or higher) of 12 PM to 10 PM (according to the post, I think they meant 12 AM) which is good, but not for everyone. Many people usually go to sleep around 8-9pm on the average day, and they usually have to deal with emo waking up and falling asleep constantly (or just staying awake and making noises). Customizable sleep times would allow EMO owners to make EMO sleep at the same time the owners sleep, allowing for a better experience at night.
I would be much grateful if you were to implement this in a future update, would improve EMO’s way of sleeping (and the owner’s experience) greatly! Thanks for reading this, and have a nice day!
