As part of an promotional effort, Intel is holding a "personification contest" online in Japan. You know, see which anime style characters be resemble computers that run Intel. Or something.

But! This kind of thing isn't that unusual in Japan. Microsoft, for example, has had several anime style mascot characters. The idea here, though, is that characters are powered by Intel, too. As Japanese website Afternoon News notes, the whole thing is rather ridiculous. That's the point! It's a stunt.

Online, people are encouraged to vote for their favourites. Which one is yours?

    They all seem a little too specific to really show character. The anime personifications for Firefox/Chrome/Internet Explorer or the ones for Windows/OSX/Linux are all distinct and you can easily tell what software they're representing, but these ones aren't just brands but specific models as well.

    I mean, the character art is good, don't get me wrong, but I can barely see a connection between them and the products they're supposed to be personifying even when the pictures are right next to each other.
