Mobile applications have become ubiquitious with the increase in the popularity and computational power of mobile devices. They can now support rich multimedia user interactions. This project consists of the design and implementaiton of an Android application that renders and animates a three-dimensional model of a human head. The test is synthesized using an Android Text-to-Speech (TTS) engine. The application successfully implements a novel solution for the animated speech synchronization and opens the door for further work in the field of interactive animation. The project can be extended to become an interface for virtual remote communication or animated text messaging.
