Bed Bath & Beyond's 'A.I.CEBREAKER' Introduces New Roommates

Now that the university school year has come to a close, the next batch of freshmen are awkwardly introducing themselves to their future roommates, so Bed Bath & Beyond is mercifully helping to make that process a little less cringe-inducing with its A.I.CEBREAKER. The service lets roommates send an email through the account of one Andy Irving (initials AI) to get past the socially perilous first step of introducing oneself.

Students can program the A.I.CEBREAKER to use different tones, with the option of 'Chill', 'Professional', 'ALLCAPS', or 'Glitc%hy r0bot'. The service can also be repurposed for things like sending party invites, borrowing a car, or reaching out to one's secret crush, with more uses coming in the near future.
