CHI 2013 Chili: Navigate and Draw, in Video Calls


Did you see the yellow interior book? Show me a little to the right.. No, some more.. Arghh, that’s too much. This one, uh-oh… Can’t I draw in a video call? Sure you can~ No.. not this kind of drawing… Video calls until now are just like this. We can neither move as we want nor point to something. We need Chili, touch video call. If we were together, I could freely look at anywhere I want. I can do it with Chili. I just move the phone to where I want, and the exact direction is sent to my friend, so that he can follow my movement, and I get what I want to see. Without interruption to explain where to look, we can stay focused on our conversation. (You mean this one, right?) When my friend follows my movement simultaneously, I feel like I’m really there. This is great. If we were together, I’d often alternate between looking at the things and my friend. That’s possible with Chili, without asking each time. Like this. Of course we can look together at the place I am at. If we were together, we could draw or point to something. Chili makes that possible. We can draw together right on the video call screen, (This one goes better with the other furniture.) and this drawing remains in place, even when the phone moves. He’s about to pass where I want to draw, then pause! My drawing on the snapshot still can be seen by him, and his drawing on the live video will appear to me too. By touching and moving the phone, I can draw even larger than myself. Maybe this long? Well, I think this long, to spread out ingredients on it. (You can check here…) (and drag here to search for night flights.) Let me see… Looks great~ and the flowers.. Beautiful~ (Where are you sitting now?) The next generation video call
