sexy it is with condom maker Skyn’s Facebook Messenger-based voice analyzer, a chat bot that rates voices by sensuality, mystery, intensity and sophistication.
To try it, visit the site and pop in a recording of your voice when prompted.
Tay may also use information you share with her to create a simple profile to personalize your experience.
Data and conversations you provide to Tay are anonymized and may be retained for up to one year to help improve the service.
The system can distinguish between male and female voices, and interpret multiple languages, including English, Italian, French, Portuguese and Polish. It isn’t clear how the analysis works (how does one measure “mystery”? We tried it twice and the percentages changed, though overall results were more or less the same—mysterious and sensual, while hopelessly wanting in sophistication and intensity. The bot then kicks you to Skyn’s website, where you can check out which of its condom boxes suit you best.
The voice analyzer is meant to be a promotion for its newest Unknown Pleasure collection, a grab-bag of warming, cooling, tingling, textured and even cocktail-flavored condoms.
The ad’s been on air for at least a year and has been released in multiple countries.
The more you chat with Tay the smarter she gets, so the experience can be more personalized for the user.
According to Microsoft, they targeted people between 18 and 24 year old in the US, since this is the dominant user group on mobile devices, but you can chat with Tay, no matter the age or location if you don’t mind US millennials jokes.
Instead, though, we were sent to the homepage and given the option to watch the Australian version of its “Feel Everything” ad in “Safe for Work,” “Feel Everything” or “Not Safe for Work” modes.
(In case you wondered—because we did—the main difference between “Feel Everything” and “Not Safe for Work” is that the latter has similar quick-shots of passionate lovemaking, except with more ass-grabbing.
