Terrifying interactions

Following on from yesterday's posting - full marks on the trying for new methods but this, is really, really, how not to make personalisation and interactivity. It's called Brian.

Eeeek!

A nice drawing would do better...

It's Max Headroom all over again. What a wonderful lack of progress in more than 20 years.

Good shout Mark- that's exactly how it feels.

Orange has a go with an avatar called Ananova a few years ago too - but what i don't understand is why we feel the need to attempt to ape human behaviour so exactly.

Either use a human - as per Ian Reeves vlogs - or go in completely the other directions and adopt the Kelvin McKenzie news bunny approach.

I think McKenzie had it about right myself...
