I don't use Skype but if I did, I'd want to telecast an image with a little more panache than me sitting in my underwear in front of a computer. Magnificent sight though that may be, I don't feel the need to transmit my half naked picture any more than I feel the need to put my pants on when sitting in front of the computer.

Enter the Great and Powerful Oz avatar. Your voice, after going through a voice changer to knock it down an octave, would animate the classic Wizard of Oz face to match your speech while flames billowed and exploded between sentences. You'd also have a soundboard to allow you to bellow and shout without all the work of actually talking. Keys would include:

"SILENCE!"

"HEAR ME NOW FOOLISH MORTAL!"

"DO NOT QUESTION THE GREAT AND POWERFUL DOCTOR REMULAC 3!" (Or insert your internet handle as appropriate)

"I HAVE SPOKEN!"

Perhaps most important, the feature of all future "great and powerful" entities as we've leared from Star Trek, the annoying habbit of repeating who you are every 3 or 4 sentences in case the lowly humans forget who they're talking to.

"I - AM - DOCTOR REMULAC 3!"

You could also press keys to shoot additional flames, play minor chord orchestral stings or thunder claps, make the face even angrier looking etc.

I'd still never use Skype, but I'd like to know I had the option.

       Might I humbly inquire as to what happened to the first two doctors?
RayfordSteele, Apr 03 2012
  

       Best not to. Statute of limitations issues in play.   

       But seriously, curious about that myself. Just needed a log in name for some political or science blog or something way back in the day, tried "Doctorremulac" (from some nutcase who called the Howard Stern radio show and just said: "I am Doctor Remulac, I am Doctor Remulac..." over and over.) and it was taken. Ok, Doctorremulac1. Nope. 2? You're kidding! But Dr Rem3 was available and here I am.   

       Exciting story.

       Maybe they regenerate inside a police box?

       will there be kangaroos?
methinksnot, Apr 03 2012
  

       You mean like pushing a button to unleash kangaroo fueled mayhem when they least expect it?   

       "DO NOT MAKE ME RELEASE THE KANGAROOS!"   

       Sure, why not.

       \\insert your internet handle: "DO NOT QUESTION THE GREAT AND POWERFUL mouseposture. I HAVE SPOKEN!"\\   

       No, it doesn't quite work, does it.
mouseposture, Apr 03 2012
  

       Street it up a bit by shortening it to "M.P." If they ask what M.P. stands for hit the "SILENCE!" button and throw in a few thunderclaps.   

       Or say it in German. Everything sounds mean in German: Mauskörperhaltung   

       Nobody would dare mess with Mauskörperhaltung.

       If it you could get it do the Mickie Mouse voice, I'd be in.

       <Clears throats>   

       "WE ARE THE BORG. YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED. FREEDOM IS IRRELEVANT, SELF DETERMINATION IS IRRELEVANT. WE WISH TO IMPROVE OURSELVES. WE WILL ADD YOUR BIOLOGICAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL DISTINCTIVENESS TO OUR OWN. YOU MUST COMPLY. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE".   

       Hmmm, not bad. Can we have one on sale or return, to try out ?

       I thought you'd want one of these 8. Customized to your specifications of course.
doctorremulac3, Apr 04 2012
  

       If it had a Elmer Fudd voice plug-in, I might go for it.
not_morrison_rm, Apr 04 2012
  

       For you, we thought maybe more Bugs Bunny ...

       To be honest, I was thinking of Stephen Hawking's voice, so I could make lots of crank calls to physics institutes around the world, but it seemed a bit unsporting.
not_morrison_rm, Apr 05 2012
  

       How do we know that's really Steven Hawking running that speech synthesizer?
doctorremulac3, Apr 06 2012
  

       You don't. "And we'd have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you pesky kids ...."
