Re: real time video chat

I'm the same way. I prefer a call/video chat over texting or typing. It can certainly make it easier and faster than having to upload shaky pics.

Re: real time video chat

Re: real time video chat

long time ago there was a virtual chat room with 3D 8bit worlds/rooms you went to and everybody was a floating avitar head you could drift about talking to others and go to an area with the group you wanted to talk to kinda like a party. me and my sons used to go to the 'Tiki island/room' mostly and meet in a cloud so others didnt bother us.

Just great!  Now I'll have to put cloths on. smile

If you build it they will come. Then they will make fun of it, tell you it's not worth doing and go home and try to copy you.
