Skype avatars

Comverse and Skype have partnered to offer Skype Klonies, an innovative avatar service that lets users personalize Skype with special characters that reflect their personalities, moods and interests.
Using the Klonies Studio in the Skype Web site, users can create and frequently update their unique Klonie image - changing hairstyles, clothing and accessories, expressions, locations, animated activities and more.

Klonies appear as the Skype caller ID on the screen of the called party, representing how the user would like to be seen, and reflecting the user's appearance, interests, and feelings.
