In Brief

An app is in development that will come to get to know you through questions and taking data from your phone

The 2013 Academy Award-nominated film Her dealt with virtual voice companions who interacted with humans through their personal cell phones and devices. Providing advice and companionship for the main character, Samantha was able to interact through audio with the outside world. While we aren’t at that level of technology yet, we may be one step closer.

Created by Blast Theory, Karen is a mobile storytelling experience that puts the user front and center in a thrilling game. At first, the digital counselor states that she just wants to help you through issues, but soon she starts pulling information from your phone to get to know you in ways you may not want it to. It promises to be a one-of-a-kind experience if they can get their Kickstarter funded by Nov. 5, 2014.
