Today I discovered Humanityonline.com, and they have developed talking avatars that are quite photo-realistic. My first (of two) videos shows the short weather report for Edmonton today.
I made a second longer video, comparing the moose to Humanity Online’s Sandy character. It’s amusing, in an odd way…
It’s not pleasant to have two characters trying to say the exact same thing, synchronized. They don’t stay synchronized, but no matter. I made this comparison video to allow close comparison, comparing closely, um shit, I can’t write.
Here’s another company, alteregos.com with talking avatars. I want to look away from them pretty quickly.
