funanbulle, our #air24h application!

The Adobe 24H Challenge was last friday and the application the 14 teams created are already online. You can see all the available applications on the official website.

Our application is called “funanbulle”. The goal of the application is to allow families to create their own micro virtual world and gather. We wanted to show what such virtual worlds would look like. The idea was to enable people to share and chat in real time with a fun and engaging user experience.

The application is nothing more than a proof of concept. If we had enough time, we would have added lots of feature like:

  • Audio chat
  • Photos and videos sharing
  • Interactive objects to trigger applications (games, sharing applications, etc…)

In the end, we had just enough time to build a 3D chat. But I think it was a lot of fun and it looks really nice! Here is a quick video to show what funanbulle is about and how it works:

This video was made by Michael Chaize to show the 14 applications created during the contest.

To install the application, just click on the following picture to go to the install badge:

When the application starts, you will be asked to “join” or “create” a room:

  • If you don’t have a room number: select “create a room” to create a new room. When the room is created, you’ll join in automatically join it. The room number will be visible in the top right corner. You can share it with your friends and family to enable them joining your room.
  • If you have a room number (because a friend already created a room and gave you its number for example): select “join a room”, type your room number and click “Go”. And voilà!

You can use the bottom text input to chat with your friends. But you can also launch special actions by typping one of the following commands:

  • /jump
  • /wait
  • /sit
  • /use
  • /wave

We hope you’ll like it and have fun with it!
