avatar2.pngI love Oddcast. Besides the phenomenally popular Monk-e-Mail, they’ve produced a constant stream of remarkably creative products which more companies ought to be using in their marketing.
I made my jeune avatar in about five minutes using Oddcast’s AutoPhoto – which turns any photo into a speaking avatar in seconds. (No idea why they gave me braces.) You can try it here, on a site where Taubman, which owns dozens of malls across the country, is using it to promote their back-to-school specials.
This is just one example of Oddcast’s remarkable work. Another that knocked my socks off is U-Do where you can make an avatar and ring tone for your mobile phone. A lot of them look kind of angry, but it’s big fun nonetheless.
