Find and Share Contextual Info While You Videoconference with Mindmeld (iPad)

Robin Good: Mindmeld is an upcoming iPad app which allows you to conference in real-time with other people with video and audio, and to find relevant related information about the things that are being mentioned in your talk.

As you are video-conferencing you can tap a light bulb icon which powers a background search on the terms being mentioned in your conversation. By sliding the conferencing pane to the left, you can then reveal a information page that lists both the key terms being mentioned, as well as related information pins, on the very topics being identified.

You can also type in manually any term or topic you would like to see more info on, and immediately share any relevant info block with everyone else in the meeting.


"MindMeld is an iPad app (for now) that uses Facebook’s open graph and identity to help create quick audio or video conferences. Add a few people and start talking. But here is where things get interesting: As you speak (or other participants speak), the app listens and starts surfacing information pertaining to what you are talking about."

Best 15 Free Video Conferencing Tools 2012

Best 15 Free Video Conferencing Tools 2012 | Online Collaboration Tools | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for a free video conferencing solution, here is my selection of the top 15 (and more) solutions available right now online.

I have personally checked each one of them, and while you may not like each one, they all guarantee the ability to video conference with more than two people (FlashMeeting is the only exception I have included) without you needing to pay anything for it.


Some, as good as Vidyo or Zoom.us may provide HD quality video and even full support for mobile platforms. Others, like MeBeam or Sinfor offer bare-bone ad-supported solutions that have zero frills but can do the job if you need an immediate, zero-cost solution.

Personal P2P Mesh Network: Share Mobile Access From Your Smartphone To Any Computer

(Reuters) - "Travelling and looking for Internet access?


A new smartphone app allows users to share mobile Web access for free with other people nearby who have the same app.


Called Open Garden, the app forms a mesh network that enables each person connected to it to relay it to other users.


"Every smartphone is a computer and a router, so we thought it was the right time to interconnect all of these devices together to make general access more ubiquitous," said Micha Benoliel, co-founder and CEO of the San Francisco-based company Open Garden."


Source: http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/06/11/uk-app-sharing-idUSLNE85A00U20120611 



From Lifehacker: "Open Garden is both a Wi-Fi tethering app and a mesh network. Install it on your Android phone and you can use your mobile data wirelessly on your Windows or Mac laptop, as well as Android tablets.


Not only that—you can piggyback on others' mobile connections.


Once you've installed the app on your phone and the client on your computer, Open Garden will run in the background managing the connection over Bluetooth.


The Android app shows you all the devices connected in Open Garden, as well as the data being transferred.


Open Garden supposedly sniffs around for other devices using Open Garden and will manage the best way for yours to get online."

New Videoconferencing Device Drastically Enhances Reproduction of Facial Expressions in Collaborative Video Sessions


"Japanese cellular operator NTT DoCoMo is demonstrating a chat system that aims to accurately portray your facial emotions online."


To drastically improve the quality of video within videoconferencing sessions DoCoMo Japan has engineered a new approach to compensate for the often low-quality, pixelated images typical of such collaborative events.

The company has in fact invented a headset that "features two cameras that point at your eyes to replicate blinking, facial expressions and skin tone in the digital world, and features a camera at the front and back for picking up your hand gestures and where you are in a room.


When your image is rendered by the cameras and projected into the digital conference, you end up looking more like an incredible video game rendering of yourself, rather than a two-dimensional human.


The addition of realistic facial movements, though, helps re-enforce the concept that this is a real person you’re talking to, rather than a lifelike avatar."

"Airtime is tied to your Facebook account (Parker is the former President of Facebook, which should help to ensure successful integration).


The Facebook connection serves a few purposes. It allows Airtime users to easily initiate video chat with their Facebook friends, and it also allows Airtime to peek into your publicly listed "interests" (likes, subscriptions, etc.) and use that information to connect you with other, random, Airtime users."

Audio Conferencing: UberConference Makes It Easy, Visual and Shareable

Robin Good: UberConference is a kind of audio-conferencing app focusing on making it easier for both the host and the participants to find out more about the other people participating, while "seeing" always who's who, who's attending and who's talking.


UberConference integrates a full conference audio recording function (downloadable .MP3), the ability to mute or "boot" anyone who is not behaving properly inside an event or a discussion, and the option of talking "secretly" just to one or more selected persons (while the others cannot hear you).


To make all of this possible UberConference has created a visual board that displays all participants faces and names, and allows once you click on anyone of them to check their social profile and their online activities.


At the end of a conference the service provides you with a summary report listing you the topics covered, who participated and who talked (and for how long).
