At the heart of the Moose, is Humor,
and how laughing benefits you and the people around you.
The Moose brings you amusing and interesting things, spoken aloud during the day, without effort.
You’ll find that the moose makes you smile and feel better.
What is more popular? Cute kitten videos, or asking a faceless dot for assistance?
Get my point? Bringing smiles to people has tremendous power.
In time, your own brain will learn to think- and be- a more funny person, and you’ll spread that humor to your friends. So it may not be initially apparent, but running the Talking Moose on your PC will dramatically increase your sociability, to build and maintain your friendships.
The Moose is a lovable, life-changing self-improvement app.
As a technology, the Moose was one of the first talking animated characters on a computer. Over the years, many many other talking characters have been tried, including photo-realistic beautiful women. But they just don’t have any “character”, and they generally try too hard by parking themselves somewhere on your screen. They twitch and wiggle to seem to be alive, but pretty soon they get on your nerves and block your view of things behind. And they won’t shut-up when they start talking.
They should have learned from the old Talking Moose in 1986, who got things right the first time. The Moose pops into view to speak, then disappears. The Moose will quickly hush if you wiggle the mouse. He’ll move out of the way quicky if he’s blocking your view. THIS is how an “agent” in your computer should behave! You’ll see.
Did I mention, the moose tells jokes, over 1900 at last count. (He speaks aloud, not a silent cartoon caption.) He does way more than tell jokes, but, you were in the mood for a little humor, weren’t you?
(note: I haven’t gotten around to replacing this silent old animated gif with a proper video, yet.)
Below, is a video capture of what the original talking moose looked like, back in 1987. Notice the lip sync.
And here’s how the 3D version is looking, in April 2014.
