Typically, when kids sleep with their dolls, they tend to talk with them behind closed doors. The parents have no idea what they talk about. Our idea is that when the kids talk with their dolls, the authorized parents will get a notification on their smartphone and they will be able to hear their kids in real time.
Lets say the kid said: "I am very tired today". The dad can hear this message on his smartphone wherever he is - say office or TV room. Now, the dad can reply back into his smartphone Oben app that: "I know. Now, lets go to sleep and we can play again tomorrow". But when these words come out of the doll in real time, they will be in the voice of the doll itself. So the kid will think that the doll is actually talking to them. That way, the kid can talk very freely without any inhibitions.
Some added enhancements to this doll:
1. A minute camera can be in the eye of the doll which can convert this doll into a surveillance device that parents can use to not only talk with the kids but also monitor the kids
2. We can use pre-programmed educational tutorials to teach kids different things such as languages and math.
The doll will need to be connected over wifi and will be very securely connected to the Oben cloud.
