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.

Send a Christmas card using Youtube!

Youtube Xmas Card

I made a Christmas animation and uploaded it for Youtube.
Check it out and if you like it, you can download an e-mail template linked to the movie.
It’s for Apple Mail (Leopard). The e-mail card and the animation make one story.

How to use the template is pretty simple: just double-click it and you’re ready to type in!

It’s free because it’s a Christmas present for you all.
Have fun!
