Freddie Laker, the CEO of startup company Guide, has designed 21 different avatars that can read content from 70 news websites (Round News is not yet included: P) thanks to an advanced text-to-speech technology. 

Laker even pitched his idea during CNBC's Power Pitch where he presented gui.de as an application that will leverage real-time creation of video content with the help of new technologies such as avatars, voice-recognition, text to speech, social media, semantic analysis and many more.

Only a third part of already existing avatars are human and their voice still sounds a little robotic but none-the-less the result is a good quality virtual newscast which can one day compete with television content, and all this is free.
