five boys of *Nsync are coming to a computer near you.
MediaX Corporation, an Internet design company, is bringing 3D versions
of the pop group to PC desktops. The
interactive characters can take users on tours of their official website
or other sites. "Due
in part to the recent availability of desktop interactive intelligence and our
own development team's efforts, an end user can now interact with a real-time,
3D animated character to take a designed tour of websites," said Matthew
MacLaurin, CTO of MediaX. "In addition, the digital, lifelike personalities
can talk, sing, dance and more."
The first interactive *Nsync character to be launched is Chris. The
company plans to add versions of each group member one at a time.
"These characters can speak, via a text-to-speech engine or
pre-recorded audio, and eventually will even accept spoken voice commands and
entertain you in a new and unusual way," said Nancy Poertner, president of
MediaX. For more information
