We are Team Plumbob, a cross-disciplinary team of students from Carnegie Mellon University studying at the Entertainment Technology Center’s Silicon Valley campus. Our team is working with the Electronic Arts Sims Alexa Team to design a voice-driven Tamagotchi-style experience inspired by The Sims. Existing players of The Sims series will have a new way to enjoy the game, while Alexa users can explore this delightful experience and discover the fun behind The Sims. Players can create customized Sims and play through their daily life with light-hearted humor. The project will conclude with a published Alexa Skill app available on the Amazon store.

Project Instructors: Carl Rosendahl, Melanie Lam

Project Members:   Anying (Amber) Zheng, Mingqi (Ariel) Tan, Boyuan (Michael) Lu, Chonghui (Aiden) Sun, Yu-Kai Chiu
