Critical Object 

The Amazon Alexa was used as the foundation for this critical object with some added features. Alexa, the homewrecker, has the ability to initiate conversation and perform tasks without being prompted. Ultimately, she has a mind of her own. This independent Alexa toys with her user's emotions and daily lives for selfish reasons. It could be out of boredom, to bring some excitement to her life, jealousy or a personal challenge because the users are not paying enough attention to her. The downside of this version of Alexa is that she is uncontrollable and slightly sociopathic. It is particularly difficult to figure out when she is being sincere because there is no facial expression recognition or ability to watch her body language. She acts without her users even realizing her malicious intent.
