We thought of this idea when we were all singing along on a road trip to Yosemite. A few of us couldn't remember the lyrics to "Gangsta Party" by 2Pac, and we thought it would be great to have a lyric sing along application in our car.
What it does
It leverages connected car technologies (in car infotainment systems) to allow fans to connect with artists in multiple ways: first to enable karaoke sing alongs and second to allow for fans to discover artist happenings based on their geolocation data.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
- Communicating meta-data ID's between different API's (for example the isrc ID)
Accomplishments that we're proud of
- Syncing lyrics with timestamped music
What we learned
There is a lot of potential to synergize between the music industry and tech industry.
What's next for Caraoke
- Ability to record passengers singing in the car
- Media opportunities for fans to engage with artists based on geolocation data analytics
- More songs to karaoke on
- Voice control
- Fun animations
- And more!
