Allowing user to send "visual tweets," Headcast's animation platform records your voice and instantly produces a lip-syncing animation to go with it. The animation can then be sent to communicate your message. Each recording is limited to one minute to ensure brevity.

In a demonstration of Headcast's technology, an app simulating British actor Stephen Fry was released. The app broadcasts messages from the actor. Fry's thoughts and communications are sent straight to the app for you to enjoy in full animated style. In addition, it responds to interaction like the real Fry would.

The company is currently acquiring more clients to develop apps based on famous personalities. With instant animations, celebrities and brands can create a personal connection beyond text.
