Elevator pitch

Problem with Speech systems is how limited they can be however with smart homes coming of age things are changing. This product takes usefulness to the next level by being modular and adaptable so it can be carried and used in more environments (cars, home, shopping) where it's easier to talk and give commands rather than use a screen interface. It also includes body tracking for picture taking.

Competition

Echo has a 70% market share, Google roughly the rest, Apple to enter the market soon. These competitors focus only on home/office hardware and not being modular to be carried and used about. None do body tracking for picture taking. Both are in a few countries (US, UK, Germany) with a vast majority of other countries up for grabs.

The product adapts to its environment i.e. can give directions with LED while driving, can play songs from an Mp3 module while shopping. Very talented Speech experts to be added to the team before launch.
