Gizmoz Raises $6.3 Million for Avatars
May 30, 2007

Gizmoz raises $6.3 Million of Series A funding from Benchmark Capital and Columbia Capital.

What does Gizmoz do?

Gizmoz allows you to make a talking character, avatar, from a photo or otherwise.

VCU says:

With Gizmoz you may create, customize, animate and share lifelike, 3D talking characters.

You may use a self-portrait starting from a single photo, or use images from their library. The result is a customized digital character that anyone can use to deliver personalized, lip-synched messages in video clips and other forms of original content.

Gizmoz is targeting the social networking and video sharing sites, as well as blogs for their service. You are able to place the talking character on a blog or social networking profile.
