CocktailParty is designed to solve the problems of traditional video communication by providing users with a more effective simulation of the real-life large gathering experience. CocktailParty allows users to join a 2-D virtual room where they can move their camera feed around to interact with others, featuring a proximity-based voice chat system enabling multiple conversations to take place at once.
A web application built with node.js, firebase.
Every large virtual meeting nowadays often comes with one major caveat: only one user can talk at a time. Our application will allow users to join a two-dimensional space in which their camera feed is their avatar, and they can move themselves around the space to speak with friends. With the COVID-19 pandemic in mind, this app can effectively simulate the real-life large gathering experience. We are constructing this app using lance.gg to handle net synchronization, vidyo.io for video communication, and express.js to handle API calls.
