SitePal is an Internet-based subscription service that allows you to create a wide-array of animated speaking characters, which can be added to your website for a variety of professional and personal applications.
SitePal provides a rich, easy-to-use to interface that makes the process of designing, managing and publishing your characters a breeze!
Absolutely no programming knowledge is required to use SitePal. However, SitePal does interface with various programming languages for those who are technically inclined.
I think this is also a real cool idea. You can now really give that personal touch when user visit your website. An almost live character will be actually talking about your products and services so user can just sit back and hear what he/she has to say instead of reading.
Also these characters are highly animated and responsive to mouse movements and almost look like they are following your every move. Check them out at – http://www.sitepal.com/
