HondaSweetMission - Work

We made an experimental voice-blog system for a radio program broadcasted by TokyoFM.
This is a kind of enhanced podcasting site. All entries are provided by text and voice-sound data, which are played with synchronized motion. Posted sound data is analyzed in the server and it's volume history is visualized to Avatar's motion. User can throw their comments on each entry, then computer voice is generated on server-side text-to-speech system.

I'm sorry that all language is japanese, you will not able to know what they are speaking. But at least I hope you will know particular atomosphere of this communication system.
