Site Pal - For Those With Extra Moolah

I finally caved and clicked on one of those annoying ads on Technorati featuring talking avatars and was led to SitePal.

So, are you looking for a way to make your web site/blog more fun/creepy? Like....adding an animated speaking character?!

SitePal is the place for you. You can select and customise the character of your choice (think Yahoo! Avatar but with more movement and voice). Basic features include following the cursor (try it out in the demo version) and advanced features include text-to-speech conversion etc.

Unfortunately, it's not free and costs quite a bundle. For a tiny flash animation that chats up your visitors, it's not all that worth it.

We do offer a FREE account, if you want to use this type of technology , we just launched NOAH, the next generation of web-based talking animated character technology. NOAH will allow the web site or E-Learning application to present a much higher engagement and interactivity opportunity to the user as compared to the other web based solutions. Our system also does not need constant connectivity to the internet so it is very useful in CD based and E-Learning projects. You can see NOAH in action at
