Okay, today I found out about Veeper technology. Its in its infancy, so it still looks kinda.. faked. But in the future this could be an awesome, and highly scary tool. The only version I was able to get hold of is on the Budweiser website, and here I made a talking Threepwood. See for yourself:

The browser/system configuration you are currently using is not supported by this application.

This application currently supports the following browsers:
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 (or higher) on Windows 98/NT/2000/ME/XP
Netscape 7 (or higher) on Windows 98/NT/2000/ME/XP
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.2 (and higher) on Mac OS X

that's not fair...

But did your amiga make the mouth move? ::

This is amazing! I can't see anyone using it as a tool of abuse either.

Actually the Amiga speech command sounded a LOT worse than this, but this sounded completely awful too. The animation, however, was scarily good.

Hey LucasTones, just noticed, YOU'RE the one who uploaded the image... did you have to do anything else to it or did it do everything automatically?

Anyone can stick a picture in, then you just move a few shapes about, type in a witty phrase and send it to everyone.

Yeah, Scabb's right. You just upload an image of a face then put dots on the eyes, and the outline of the face and the mouth etc. Its very easy to do.

*runs and hides

Guybrush looks suspiciously like Captain Jack Aubrey does in Master and Commander (depicted by Russel Crowe)
