Intel Launches Messaging App Using Cartoons To Mimic Sender's Face
Intel Corp is getting into voice instant messaging with a smartphone app that uses facial tracking technology to caricature a sender's expressions. Pocket Avatars was launched on Thursday by Mike Bell, an Intel senior executive whose job is to make sure the world's largest semiconductor maker is at the front of future technology trends after arriving disastrously late to smartphones and tablets. The app uses a smartphone's camera and microphone to record a short message while mapping the speaker's facial expressions onto one of several cartoon characters.

Enjoying the Movie Music? You Might Have NYC's Grandest Ballroom to Thank
As movie audiences settle in to enjoy Ben Stiller's new movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, it's a sure bet that the film's score will add to the drama on screen. What most audiences might not appreciate is the dramatic history of the space where that score was recorded: Manhattan Center's Grand Ballroom. Along with the Hammerstein Ballroom, the Grand Ballroom is part of the Manhattan Center, and it is Manhattan Center Productions that operates New York City's most advanced independent recording studios and television production facilities.

Virtual Idol Excites Fans in Live MIKUPA Concert
Virtual Idol Excites Fans in Live MIKUPA Concert
In many ways, Hatsune Miku is a typical teenaged pop star. She is a popular performer in Japan with her own signature style (think long turquoise pigtails) and she sings regularly to large, excited crowds. But unlike other pop stars, Hatsune Miku is actually a computer generated image. She is a vocaloid character created by Crypton Future Media. Vocaloid software allows a user to type in lyrics and melody which can then be sung by a voice synthesized from recordings of a voiceover actress. Since vocaloid's release, more than 100,000 songs have been created and published by its users. Users can also use Hatsune Miku's artwork if it is not for commercial use, so not only can they create songs, but also illustrations and CGI. Read More

While there are many, many 'broadcast' mics available to perform this, for many hobbyists and professionals not creating actual broadcast video, these are overkill and let's face it, probably too expensive. This is where the RØDE Podcaster Mic comes into its own. Read More
