Talking characters on cell phones are the latest rage. But a new subsidiary of Sensory plans to take that a step up with accurately animated lip-synching.

3Dmsg, the new division of Sensory, is planning to launch the animated talking ``avatars'' to display on cell phone screens in 2006. Using the company's homegrown animation and voice-recognition technologies, the avatar's lips move as precisely as a real person's do when they're pronouncing various phonemes, or snippets of words.

``You could send a message to someone with your own image, which can lip-sync the words to `Happy Birthday' in your own voice,'' Mozer said. The company will display the technology at the Consumer Electronics Show in January and on its Web site at www.3dmsg.com (http://www.3dmsg.com/)."

Which is cheaper sending an MMS of an animated greeting or calling the person and saying the very same greeting? Add in the cost of setting up that greeting....

Maybe I'm just not in one of those 'it's-shiny-it's-cool-who-cares-if-its-expensive-unnecessary-and-impractical' target groups :surprised

(im all for taking the money of obnoxious girls who have nothing better to do then squak on their phones all day - nothing personal... but URGH!)

Well the best thing is that that audience doesn't even pay for their CELL phone bill - their parents do, so to them they don't care if it costs $1 each message, daddy is flipping the bill.
