Sorry, I'm afraid not. The closest thing I can think of is SitePal:

To clarify, you are looking for a website that features a human virtual assistant like this one at Intel?

Did you mean a 3D modeled character?

Your best bet is probably to go with what NAK321 pointed out, and rather than an 'animated' character, shoot video of an actual person.  Most all video of this nature on the web is developed through Adobe Flash, so you'd need a little expertise there to implement something like the Intel example.

I may be able to point out some shortcuts if this is the direction you're leaning toward?

Its flash script so you would want to hire a professional flash designer. There are plenty out there, but they are not cheap. An animation script like that will run you thousands of dollars. But, if you have the money and the resources, then a professional flash designer will be able to provide you with a solution.

Its also possible that you could "animate" a cartoon character using the Adobe After Effects "puppet" tool in addition to professional voice overs. It would not look at all like a live person, but it just depends on the style you are going for.

Also note that Flash CS4 has new 'bone' tools that allow for easier character animation; probably similar to the After Effects tools.
