Europe’s biggest “The Lord of the Rings” Convention – the ideal setting for the premiere of the ComBOTS character Aragorn

Fulda/Karlsruhe, 11/09/2006. ComBOTS AG (ISIN: DE000CMBT111) presents the first character, Aragorn, from the forthcoming “The Lord of the Rings” collection live at Ring*Con 2006, Europe’s largest gathering of the fans of hobbits, elves & co. Just a few weeks after the announcement of the license agreement between ComBOTS and New Line Cinema at the International Consumer Electronics Trade Fair (IFA) in Berlin, more than 5,000 participants in Ring*Con (November 11-12, 2006, Fulda) have an opportunity to see for themselves the high graphics quality standards, fun and emotionality of personal, digital communication using ComBOTS.

ComBOTS is an internet-based service that leaves behind all the complexity of existing applications including installation- and compatibility problems, complicated user interfaces, the necessity of spam protection. The new product puts simplicity, fun and privacy back into everybody’s personal digital communication.

ComBOTS has its own stand at Ring*Con 2006. All “The Lord of the Rings” fans who register there for a free test will be given, as community scouts, an exclusive character in advance of the sales launch in the ComBOTS Shop free-of-charge.

Using intuitive Drag & Drop operation, a top-design straightforward user interface, hiding the all powerful technology under the surface, ComBOTS brings back fun into communication through permanent and private one to one connections to friends and family. Each of these connections is represented by a high quality 3D character with animated emotions that make icons, smilies or greeting cards look outdated.

From now on anything, like pictures, files or video clips can be sent using Drag & Drop within seconds. Media messages might contain photos, voice, folders or animated emotions. If both friends are online, quite naturally a chat or – with just another click – a free phone conversation can evolve. []
