Abstract
In our world today, we see the evolution of the communication paradigms all with the aim of ensuring a quick and quality way of passing information from one subject to another in different locations. Currently, with the advent of the internet, many efforts are being made to make communication socially immersive; in a way that the person you are communicating with feels naturally close to you. With the inclusion of visual data like pictures, emoticons and videos, people are able to relive past events they missed and are able to have a more realistic sense of how that party, dance, wedding or funeral went. More over the addition of these extra data apart from the traditional text and voice, are able to convey the unspoken words; the emotions, after all a picture can say a 1000 words. This report presents a revolutionary communication product that is supposed to take communication to a whole new level; creating the opportunity for people to accomplish some task otherwise unimaginable on the traditional communication systems.
