WWWorld's inspiration came from the possibilities of video, twilio's sync api, and the power of iconographic reactions to create an engaging and immersive user experience. Our inspiration drew from sources such as Periscope's live viewing feature and Facebook Live's reaction series (love, wow, haha, sad, angry) in the creation of WWWorld, a Chrome Extension.
What it does
WWWorld is a chrome extension that allows users to react to the same video in real time. It utilizes Twilio's Sync API to synchronize video play time between users. Users can then express reactions playfully and intuitively as the video plays with WWWorld's emoji's.
