The project aims at providing immersive storytelling experience through voice assistant along with connected IoT devices. Premised on humans being fundamental storytellers, and the need to make voice assistants more human like, it argues that combining storytelling in voice assistance will be a desirable and interesting feature. Using mixed method research, the nuances of storytelling is understood through enunciation, semantic differentials and emotional responses. It also looks at gestural inputs for storytelling by considering connected IoT devices as storytelling props.
