Are you one of the rare few who own a dedicated GPS navigation device? Well, if you are, then surely you would have heard of the name TomTom. It seems that this company intends to perk up their offerings by delivering navigation instructions voiced by Sesame Street characters, Bert & Ernie. Yes, this dynamic duo who are hardly separated from one another in the educational TV show is back and won’t be your backseat driver, but rather, will be sitting right in front of you by your dashboard, spewing out directions in their very own classic way.
Developed in association with Sesame Workshop and Locutio Voice Technologies, you would need to have a dose of humor if you are going to equip your TomTom device with one of these puppies. Imagine them saying, “U-turn ahead, Bert. Just me turn? All of us Bert.” Each direction will more or less deliver a smile to your face – and there is nothing better than arriving at your destination happy instead of with a grumpy face. You can download Bert & Ernie’s voice for $12.95 here. [Press Release]
