LobbyBeta / social networking software


The prototype LobbyBeta visualizes the social network of a user by analyzing and combining data of existing services like MySpace, Skype or Outlook. A virtual room, in which the contacts displayed as avatars can be organized, builds the visual base of the desktop application. Within this environment events like incoming calls or new blog entries are displayed as well as functions for interacting with individual contacts are given. The application can entirely be used with a mouse or with a controller, so it is qualified to be used on a media center pc or a video game console.
