Can't meet Santa this year? Turn to A.I.
Location: Los Angeles, California
Tech company Storyfile created a website
where children can ask Santa questions online
The answers are prompted by voice activation on their app
(SOUNDBITE) (English) STORYFILE CEO, HEATHER SMITH, SAYING: "The database, the AskSanta database has about 180, 200, questions so they can ask him quite a lot. The number one question so far is 'Am I on the naughty or nice list?', of course."
AskSanta.com is live until New Years Eve
The app is free to access
but creators are asking visitors to donate to their charity partners
(SOUNDBITE) (English) SANTA CLAUS, SAYING: "This whole concept is amazing and what better way for a child to be able to interact with Santa in such a challenging time, for any length of time, in the comfort of their own home."
