According to techradar.com, Casio is at CES 2013 featuring futuristic-looking digital signage that features animated characters or people who attempt to talk to passersby via computer-generated voices.
According to the site, the Casio solution "is compact, measuring just 18 inches by 21.10 inches. Its base looks like a cash register, only one with a customized flat animated character cut-out on top of it."
By far, the most interesting Casio digital signage demo was a talking hamburger that was cutesying up its fast food. This talented burger could speak in a variety of languages including English, Chinese, Korean, and Spanish.
The $10,000 solution launches at the end of the month, and requires no installation work and no video production, with Casio setting up the system with just a still image and text.
