I joined Compath.me!

I’m pleased to announce I’ve joined Compath.me as designer and communication manager.

Compath.me connects your interests and location to help you discover the world around you. We will help you discover popular spots, restaurants, shops, events, and items that are nearby. Compath is not a regular photo sharing app – it is a compass of your life.

 

Compath.me is one of 16 finalists of Le Web’11 16 Startup Competition (video). I’ve been using this app for a while already and found it’s very useful and fun. I’m thrilled to have a chance to get involved in this team!

You can follow Compath.me on Twitter.

I’ll keep doing my freelance business, too.

Animation Video Chat

Now that we have Google’s automatic captioning on videos on YouTube, which I like very much, what about speech balloons around the captions? It’d be more helpful if the location of the voice source could be indicated by an arrow from the balloon and the voice tone could be expressed with different balloon shapes.

If your gestures could bring motion characters that can be manipulated on both sides, video chatting would become like a fun video game.

When your girlfriend throws a kiss when video-chatting, many hearts appear moving towards the thrown direction. You can touch and move the characters on your side.

Wink and get stars. (Can characters go beyond the chat window like this?)
You might think of lots of other gestures and fun characters.

World Cleanest Graffiti— iPhone App Concept

There are a number of drawing iPhone apps available, but I think it would be fun if you could paste the picture you draw on a real wall, but virtually.


Draw a picture with your iPhone.


Choose the wall you want to paste the picture on.


Point and paste the picture. Resizing possible.


Share it with people on an online map.


Or share with only the person you choose. And if you want someone to go to a place (physically) to see the picture, just choose “local share” only.
This is just like an old bulletin board outside and might work well if you want to convey your feeling to someone.


The images can be seen through your iPhone just like usual graffiti from any angle.

Thank you again for the great photos, *momoc.

Would Be So Much “Phun” On iPhone!

I’m absolutely in love with Phun, a free game like 2D app for kids, where they can learn physics, science and so many other stuff.
What I think is that it would be much more fun to play it with the iPhone because you can actually tilt it to see what happens.
I happened to find a similar application called iPhysics, but I think Phun has a lot more functions and is really educational for kids.
