Fix8.jpg Browsing through a backlog of newsfeeds this morning I came across this one via MocoNewsNet:

Fix8, a video chat service that lets users talk via animated avatars, has raised $2 million from SK Telecom (NYSE: SKM), adding to the $3 million it raised last year from Vickers Financial Group. Both fundings are part of the same $5 million first round. In addition to the inv*stm*nt, the company has received a contract from SK Telecom to lead the operator’s efforts at enhancing the mobile chat experience. LA-based Fix8, a division of Mobinex, also has offices in China and Vietnam.

My son and I enjoyed watching the video of Fix8’s capabilities (see below) – unfortunately it’s not available for the Mac, but it certainly looks like a fun app to play with, and is an indication of the increasing move away from simple text as a communication method.
