20th Century-Fox has gifted mankind with a revolutionary tool to make us sound like a chipmunk. It's part of the hoopla for the updated big screen movie, Alvin and the Chipmunks. Here's the scoop:
"...An interactive experience where users can express their inner chipmunk. You can 'chipmunk' your own voice and create a customized audio message, as well as build a chipmunk avatar. Using technology from Oddcast, the site allows users to record their own voice via mic and by phone (US only), or use text-to-speech to create a computer-generated message. The system uses a special voice filter that transforms the users dialogue into the iconic sound of The Chipmunks. Site visitors can then download their recording to their computers, or send their munked message via email to friends and family."
