PANORAMA is a live, interactive web-based chat.

Instead of telling stories about places through text-based chat, you enter a location in PANORAMA which drops you and your friends browsers into streetview at that location.  Using the laptop webcam and computer vision, users can look around the location just by moving their head.  Streaming audio lets the conversations take place within the l0cation.

By using new methods of interaction and communication between parties, I hope to allow users to enhance their conversations online, lending greater context to the stories we tell each other.  PANORAMA was made for Live Web at ITP, written in HTML/CSS and Javascript.  It uses the google maps API, socket.IO, headtrackrJS, PeerJS, and nodeJS.
