ActiveRain's RainCamp came to Dallas TX back in mid-February. At that time, I (we) were given many great and new technology ideas to use in our businesses.
The first thing I talked about was Klout.com. Klout tracks your "popularity" on Twitter. I went from a rating of 10 up to 21 in just a couple of weeks. Great tool as it got me to mingle more with people I don't know.
On to something new...
I downloaded State from xtranormal.com. This is a very interesting tool as you can create videos with animated characters and they take your text and act out whatever scene you create for them. I took it a step further and did a voice-over so it didn't sound robotic, though I do talk fast, but that's normal. Here is it... what do you think?
Using the program, you can have your actors walk around, make hand gestures, move their eyes, and many other things. There is a fee to download a group of actors, but it was something like $10. (Just a heads up, I did receive a charge of like $0.26 on my credit card saying it was an international charge, and I'm assuming it came from this as I don't buy anything international.)
I am probably going to start emailing this out to my database and giving people an actual voice to the emails they're receiving from me when they ask for listings.
Thanks for a great new tool, RainCamp guys!
