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.

  1. Very interesting idea.

    Would be great if the video chat transcript could also be saved to a file and made searchable.

  2. Hi,
    I have visited your website today and it
    was a wonderful experience !
    The wonderful presentation of your
    website have become my point of
    attraction. I think it would be a
    mutually beneficial decision for both of
    us to exchange some links or articles. It
    can help both of us to increase the
    number of visitors to our sites and a top
    ranking in google search.
    Waiting for your positive reply.
    Thanks & Regards,
